hi

Hello everyone! Thank you for collectively gathering and building what looks to be a very informative message board.

My name is Rick and I'm just getting back into the hobby with a new 56g column aquarium that is setup freshwater. I currently have 6 Tiger Barbs and 4 Green Cory in the tank with pool filter sand substrate and artificial plants. Back several years ago in college I had a 29g planted aquarium with co2 and high lighting etc. and a pair of bolivian rams that consistently spawned -- but I'm a long way from getting back to that. I would also like to introduce a Firemouth and perhaps a Blood Parrot (yeah, I know, but they are amazing looking) to my new tank.

I found usafishbox thanks to member SemperFish who found my post on Craigslist. I bought a big bottle of Seachem Stability thinking it would expedite the cycle process, but I'm in the middle of a battle with ammonia and SemperFish helped me out tremendously by providing seeded filter media to get me back on track after finding my post seeking help on Craigslist.

Thanks again for the help SemperFish and hello fishbox!

Thank you all for the greetings! I look forward to interacting with you in the future!

Attaching a couple pictures of my tanks. They are coming off my phone so I apologize for the quality. I'll get some better ones taken and put up soon.
