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 :)

Hi Brice,
That is so inspiring! One of the greatest joys of this hobby are the memories that you create with your family! Congrats on the pending #3.... you have parenting all figured out by the third one, right?
Glad that you joined! Happy to have you,
Michelle
