Time to say hello

Joined a couple of weeks ago, and have been reading a lot and doing some posting. Thought I should make a formal introduction to the community. A couple of years ago I had a 50 gallon that I had planted. Last year I broke the tank down when I decided to try doing a saltwater tank. A year later after not being able to get where I wanted in saltwater, mainly budget and having poor luck with live stock I decided to go back to freshwater. So I am now getting my 72 gallon bowfront ready to be converted to a freshwater planted tank focused around angelfish. Will be starting a journal once I get closer to getting some necessary equipment and there is more to talk about than an empty tank.

Re: Time to say hello

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I haven't decided on which angels yet. I do like the look of some of the angels that express the philippine blue gene. I have a few more lfs around me that I want to check out what the have. Along with trying to maybe try to find some breeders that are some what local.

There are some definitely stunning angels that are being breed out there. I am just not sure if I want to deal with shipping.
