Default Hi from Ann Arbor!

Hey guys I'm new around here, and just discovered the Michigan section on the forums. I have worked at a few pet stores around A2 when I was younger. I was really into aquariums back then, and when I stumbled upon video games (a much cheaper but more addictive hobby) I dropped the fish tank thing. I know, it's quite sad...but it probably saved me thousands.

Recently however, I've decided to pick up aquariums again; I'm trying to diversify my hobbies. Too much of one thing is a bad thing. So one day I went out in the garage and found an old 10 gallon with the gravel and hardscaping all still in tact. I filled er up and bought some fish. And so it begins...

Of course a 10 gallon isn't enough. Here I am planning away on a 29g when that tax return comes in! I'm drooling over a rimless 33gallon I found (Mr. Aqua) but it's pricey. Thought about a DIY "removing the rims" on a 29g but I'm not sure if I trust that. Then I was thinking why not just go with a 55 and use the 10g for a little shrimp tank...

You know the deal! So many ideas, not enough money!

Anyway I just wanted to say hello, introduce myself, and ramble about stuff. Any A2 people around here?

Welcome to the TPT and the Michigan subforum.

What kind of fish did you get to put into your 10?

Oh just some guppies, bloodfin tetras, checker barbs. A couple of little ghost shrimps. I want to go back and get some more of those bloodfin tetras, I'd like to have a school of those when I get the bigger tank...I really like them. I should have gotten a bunch to begin with!

This is the only place that I've really been posting. I'm on FishtankTV, because I'm a fan of Dustinsfishtanks on YouTube- but that's more of a social networking site and not really a forum type place...the forums there are just filled with pharmaceutical ad spam!

I am going to sign up on great lakes, thank you for telling me about it! I'm trying to make fish tank friends in my area.
