View Full Version : New here, not to the hobby

Hi all,

After a military move and being tank free for about 4 years I am getting back into it. I have experience with a nano as well as a larger 50g. Made the mistake of selling all my equipment as I SWORE I wasn't going to start anything until my husband retired, but I started really wanting another one. So I am going to go ahead and set up a 20g nano. Scored a new one last nite for 20 bucks(yay for $1 a gallon sale).

I've lived in the Springs most of my life and its kinda nice to be back. Wasn't much in aquarium supply where we just came from. Good to also have a local resource for information with you guys

Now, onto finding the rest of the equipment I need and researching the stuff I want

Oh no 75 in 6 months!! I went from a 20 to a 50 the first round and I LOVED it, but with us being in the Army I just don't want to go there again..now maybe a second nano could happen...
