Brackish tank...

My mind is lure towards a brackish tank. I think a 29g is a good starting point and I got it...

Going to be gorgeous. The first "large" tank I was able to afford was a 29 gallon.

Me too, back in 1973 when I was in second year of college.

That may have been the year I got mine...but I'd already graduated college. With the disparity in pay between women and men back then it took me quite a while (two years) to save up.

I know it is as you say. Inequality is as human as society, such a pity.

Oh my Gosh! almost forget to credit you for sparking this idea in my mind when I saw your brackish tank the other night while lurking through the forum. Thank you Tree!

I'm not sure about the critters yet but, I'm hardly thinking about a red mangrove tree as the main theme of the tank and build around it. Oh yes, the driftwood will return to their curing buckets until their time comes on.

Nah it's alright. I'm glad I inspired ya! I heard that driftwood rots in brackish tanks? but then I heard as long as its not full salt water it would be fine. Just watch for rotting signs later on. I'm sure it will be fine. I changed into fake wood. once you figure out what fish I would love to see the WIP! =D
