    Thank you Pat, am glad to be back.
    I am no longer in Connecticut, would you be able to change to New York for me when you have a chance ?

    Larry, thanks for sharing. Austerlitz NY is such a beautiful place.... In New York, but in the Berkshire foothills too! I spent about 15 years in North Greenbush & West Sand Lake NY.
    Once the NY exits get numbered with a 'B' on I-90 heading east... the towns get prettier!

    We love Fish Room Project threads here at Simply D (a form of living vicariously), so be prepared for allot of questions!

    You're going to have a very handsome fish room. You wouldn't like mine at all. It's all bare bones with all the hard pluming in sight.

    Thank you Peter, Arizona is really nice also, esp since we had snow last night, about 4 inches. I will keep this thread going with updates as I go, appreciate your comments.
    Thanks again

    Thank you Liz appreciate it. Yours is not so bad, was looking through your posts the othher day, as I am looking for all the differant ways to do this. I am going to have, for now, 2 125 gallon totes for water changing, and seeing I have hard water am looking for a water softning system for the whole house, which should help.
    Thanks again for looking

    read up here about water softener water before you take the leap. Discus do fine in hard water.

    I agree with Liz, hard water is fine, even preferable for general keeping and grow out as it's inherently more stable due to the higher KH.
