    Hi New Here Too

    Post by modelmaster on Fri Mar 23, 2012 12:37 pm

    I want to thank Joefish72
    For welcoming me to fishaddict and for the wonderful irredescent shark he brought me yesterday...he/she is beautiful.
    I am new here but, I hope to enjoy some wonderful knowledge from the folks here and maybe share some... I have given up my glass tanks for a 8000 gallon tank/pond..
    I have a many sepices keep together without the aggresive behaviours seen in glass tanks, chiclids ( Oscar, yellowlabs, electric blue, jewels, angelfish), goldfish, barbs, shiners, bluegills, archers, gambusia, tetras and more...
    I welcome anyone who wants to see it in person..

    I was wondering that too Zeke, as soon as I saw that 8000 gal tank/pond. Welcome to the forum. These people are almost too nice and too generous with their wisdom. Almost;)

    Easiest way is uploading pics to a photobucket account.

    Welcome aboard, I sent you a message with directions on how to post pictures.

    I was lucky enough to see this pond in person and it is amazing. Theres too much to list but some of the coolest stuff was a hydroponics table connected to a waterfall. Cichlids and goldfish living together with no issues. Only 3 feet deep so you can get in for maintenance, of the pond or yourself, lol. Most impressive was the entire family enjoys the fish, I know for most of us one person is the fish keeper and the rest just look at us like we are weird.

    While on the subject of people, you couldn't meet a more friendly group.

    MM.. here is a link on how to post pics straight from your pc without having to go through a photo hosting site. It's a little clunky... but works. The 1st post is a write up and later I added screen prints to make it more understandable. Bill in Va.
