First, wow, the forum looks totally different Koko,,, as things tend to do when you've been gone this many years, I guess.

We haven't had an aquarium up in a while, other than a betta or two in a 2.5g minibow.  But after the recent loss of our beloved boxer dog Bailey, my wife and I decided it's time to have some fish again.  

So I pulled the old 72-gallon bowfront out of storage, gave it a good cleaning, new filter, new light (when did those get so expensive?!) and took my son down to the petstore to pick out some decor.  We got it up and running a week ago -pic below- and today added a few fish,,, little platys that, along with some borrowed media and API quickstart, are gonna help me continue cycling this bad boy.

As I was telling my son about the nitrogen cycle, I remembered where I learned about it (and SOOOO much more) and thought I'd swing by and see if anyone's still around.

Sorry for your loss. It’s never easy losing a beloved pet. 

Welcome back to the forum. :)
