Welcome to the forum, Mike. You're amidst a wonderful array of like-minded hobbyists.

Can you share the specs of your tanks please?

Hi Mike. I'm from Maine, too - Midcoast. I'm pretty new to the hobby, as well. A power outage from our recent ice storm is causing me some problems. Hope it didn't affect you! Welcome!

Mike,

What are the sizes of your tanks? Can you also provide some details about the filters you use, water change frequency, fish and any other details you think may help everyone here?

I have a 10g with 4.5 wpg and co2, 20 gallon with 2.5 wpg and a 55 gallon with 2.75 wpg.
Filtration for the 10 and 20 are tetra tec 20-30 and for the 55 gallon I have a Rena XP3 and an AC110.
my 10 houses guppies, platties, mystery snails, ramshells and pond snails. They don't bother my plants because I feed them broccoli weekly.
My 20 gallon houses mated pair of angels, 2 Bolivian rams, striped raph and 2 featherfin syno.
The 55 houses 7 discus, 2 mated pair of angels, 1 common pleco, a bunch of tetras and 1 gold t-bar cichlid.

Welcome to APC. I just moved from the Maine Coast a month ago. Let me know if there is anything you would like to know about the area, I lived in Portland for 8 years.

Welcome to the forum!!:p

Can't wait to see some pictures of your tanks?

I am bitten by the plant bug too. Just so nice to have an inside garden isn't it.
