Just a quick introduction. We are a family of 4: mom, dad, 5.5 year old (I'm told we can't forget the 0.5!), and almost 2 year old.
My husband and I kept a small reef tank (29 gallon and 4 gallon pico) several years ago but took it down before the girls were born. Recently our 5yo has been asking for a goldfish. Not wanting to get back into the salt world right now, and wanting more than one fish we dove into the planted tank world a few weeks ago.
We're looking forward to getting to know everyone and learn (and teach our girls) about how to properly care for our new tank!
As a side note, we've both had freshwater tanks at various times throughout our lives, but never planted!
We still have everything for the 29 (light, skimmer, heater, pumps, stand, etc) but the actual tank. We went with all new stuff for this tank, a 40 gallon breeder. We are reusing the auto-top off from the salt tank. So nice not to have to worry about that!
