Hello everyone. I am a dad of 2 (soon to be 3) and we have had a freshwater pond with Gold fish, and chinese high fin sharks for years, as well as a 90 gallon freshwater tank (with a ghostknife and roseline sharks). I decided about a year ago I wanted to try my hand at saltwater. I got my first tank a 13 gallon small tank, and made a softie tank with a couple of clowns, and a purple firefish golbie. My eldest daughter (6) helps me with all of my tank requirements and loved the fish so much that she wanted a tank in her room, for simplicity she has a beta tank with some shrimp. I recently started up my second saltwater tank a 75 gallon with a sump. And am looking forward to playing with that one in the near future. I would not be where I am today with my set ups if it hadnt been for all the amazing threads and posts on this forum. So I decided to join up, to be able to ask questions, and answer any questions that I feel I might have figured out in my so far journey. I look forward to interacting with everyone. I live in Denver CO so anyone in the area who loves fish and wants to get together sometime for a meet up we totally should :)

Welcome to R2R!! Denver CO is nice! Went there a few times for work, back in October.

I stopped at the local aquarium restaurant, which was amazing, and the fish are huge!!! You also have a good amount of LFS in the area.

Glad to have you!

Welcome.
Would love to see pics of the pond. I have been playing with the idea for about a year now. Just can't figure out how to keep my rather large dog out of it.
Actually My large dog hates water... so we got lucky because she NEVER goes into it (unless its frozen over and she breaks through the ice, which is kinda funny). Ill see If I can get some photos up.
