Well this is quite the change to the POTM... I am genuinely surprised at the absolute lack of interest and love that the freshwater side gets, regardless of this being a saltwater forum.

I am constantly seeing threads and buid threads that start with saying,..
" This is my first attempt at saltwater, although I have kept freshwater for X # of years..." or something to that effect.
For many of us the freshwater side of things was what got us involved in the aquarium world in the first place whether it was a simple goldfish in a simple tank or nowadays the all too common and sadly "disposable betta".

Anyways enough blah blah blah...here is my photo. This is just a quick cell phone pic I took today nothing special... I also am liking Kiens chances of winning this month hahahaha

LOL I know I know. Sometimes I miss the simplicity of fresh aquariums, but I do get bored looking at them after a short while. I could stare at a reef tank for hours.

Bur since I've been searching through all my old pictures, found a couple other fun tanks.

180 gallon Arowana
