Glad to see people sharing and caring here.

Was all excited for getting my 110 inside this weekend, until it snowed.

Doogy262 been following your Discus thread. Didn't realize you were a Michigander. Tank looks great and looking forward to seeing how it develops.

Yes, April in Michigan....snowing Saturday, could be cutting the grass next week!

Thanks Greggz,that tank was a year in the making so really pumped about it,they are doing great so far, just added 7 sterbai cory's and they disappeared into the plants so have to wait for them to settle down and in about a month when I am sure all is well I will add about 25 cardinal tetras and that should be it...

Thanks! Yeah I thought about it, but whenever I think about how much of a huge mess it could possibly be it changes my mind.

If anyone's interested, I'm trying to sell my Aquaticlife 48 inch dual T5HO fixture. I had it a stored away ever since I started using my Current USA Satellite LED fixture. Just don't need it anymore.

I'm also considering moving to a 40 breeder at the current dpg sale from Petco. I probably won't though. I still love the 55 I have now and how I can watch the schools of fish swim from one side to the other in such a long tank.

Update on my 20 long, added some Hygrophila corymbosa angustifolia that was originally in my 60g. They looked unsightly in the 60g because the lower ends of the stems had lost their leaves, so i trimmed them all to the same length and put them in the 20g. Second pic shows all my inhabitants: Boraras brigittae, Boraras uropthalmoides, and Neon Tetras.

Hello Michiganders!

My name is Shirley and I am a newbie here, and though I've had community fish tanks on and off, I never realize how many factors go into doing them properly! I'm trying to learn all I can 'cause I want my tanks to be as beautiful and successful as those I've seen here.

I retired from teaching in the Detroit area last year, and moved to Holland, on the West side of MI. I don't have any pictures right now, but will get some soon.

Nice to know there are lots of MI people on this site.

Muskegon here. Replanting my tank tonight switching out from gravel to Eco complete and fingers crossed it will be an easy transition. Helping the roomie with his tank. He just switched from a 55 to a 125gal. I feel like it takes up half the living room but I'm excited. He is doing sand in the new one and clown loaches bala shark electric blue acara and tiger barbs. Trying to encourage him to do some low light low Tech plants.

Another update on the 20 gallon long. Just brought home a 30" finnex stingray, and I already like it better than the T5. The stingray cost about the same as the T5 fixture cost originally, uses less energy, puts out more light and I wont have to replace bulbs every 8 months. Both my tanks are LEDs now, and I think they're worth the money. Don't plan on going back.
Also, did a slight rescape. Thoughts?

Recently ditched my USA Current Satellite LED Plus in favor of a Finnex 24/7 for my 55. Was lucky enough to get it for 110 dollars shipped from FostersandSmith. Sold the old Current LED on Amazon for 90 dollars, so I got almost all of my money back.

Keep us updated on how the Finnex work out. I'm using dual t5HO but considered switching. Have had a series of unfortunate events....diatom killed most of my plants after switching substrates, and then a cracked heater killed 3 of my favorite fish. Hoping things start heading in the right direction soon

I can tell you it is a lot noticeably brighter than the Current Satellite fixture, which don't get me wrong I liked a lot, but I just wasn't getting any growth out of my plants at all. Come to find later on it's not really that good of a fixture for plants. Especially in a deep tank like a 55.
