GL, not saying you can't have a bta. I hope they thrive for you. Wild bta's are difficult means to care for. Since you got a Black widow, it should adapt easy enough.
Have a speedy recovery!
Most of us are pretty salty. Not in a bad way ;)
Speak for yourself. I'm extremely salty in a bad way. Don't eat me.

Hey everyone! My name is Michael (my name in league and most other video games is Makse so I figured why not), and I’m from the Bridgeport area of Connecticut—I’m also a freshman at UConn this fall. I’ve been keeping all sorts of aquariums for almost half a dozen years (though, to be frank, at the earlier stages it was mostly my older brother because I wasn’t even in highschool haha), and have used this site for reference and other resources available here on many occasions, though never actually joined. Well, out of boredom in the hospital due to some 4th of July fun, and at the constant urging of someone from my LFS, I’ve finally made an account! I hope I can meet a ton of super smart and friendly people to talk about this awesome (and extremely expensive) hobby here.

Now down to what matters. As I said above, I’ve been in the hobby for a good chunk of my life, converting from fresh to salt a few years in like I suspect a bunch of people have. I’ve been outta the game for about a year and a half now due to monetary and time constraints, but having landed a couple stable jobs recently and having some available cushion, and outta jealousy of my best friend, I convinced myself to dive back in. I had an old G4 XR15 I got for a birthday 2 years back and a crap ton of supplements and unexpired test kits so I hopped onto Waterbox and ordered myself a 15 gallon peninsula(—SO Waterbox, btw, ur stuff is fire). That was about 5 or 6 weeks ago, and here’s my baby now:

I don’t wanna go too in depth here, but I’m easin myself back in with a mixed softy and lps tank (my mocha storm, Milo, wanted to say hi in the second pic). Also, please excuse the dirty glass, these are the best pics I have atm but I’ll be sure to take some better ones for my build thread when I get home.

In any case, nice to meet you guys and expect to see me pretty often haha!
Welcome! Dirty tank or not, it's still beautiful. This is definitely the forum to be in to meet people and get answers to questions.
