    Hi there. I just joined as well, a couple of days ago. Welcome and I hope you have a great time here like I anticipate. Sounds like you are very busy with three boys. Do you work in the business for drilling for water wells? That's hard work. What kind of "4 fish" do you have? We use to have a 50 gallon tank with tetras, guppies, mollies, and platies. So much fun. Fun hobby. Talk to you later. Angela
