I was hoping to get some good pics before placing our bio here, but was getting some heat. So, here we go.
I am Rob (aka HarleyDude) and my wife is Carolyn (aka callen). I co-administer the site with Sixpack. callen and I live just north of Pittsburgh, PA -- go Steelers!! (well, maybe next year).
We love Oscar's and their personalities. I started with Oscar's about 13 years ago, but was out of it for a while.
We currently have a
180-gallon tank (from glasscages.com)

Callen here...Well as HD said he use to have an O..for me it was my first time and you just can't help but fall in love with them. I also have gotten my hands wet with the saltwater and just love it!
Pics are finally here:
OK - I took enough heat -- here is a pic of the wife (callen) chatting with
Raevn, Barbwire and Daygen. Chopper is observing -- it is what he does best.
Here is our old setup with the 72gallon tank.
Here is our 180gallon tank.
Our Hybrid / Cons.
Our Jack Dempsey.
and our Pleco.
Our cat Harley, yes Harley -- I have a one track mind - sorry.
Here is Chopper, yes again with the motorcycle theme. He monitors our tank for us.
My other hobby is riding my Harley (probably could have guessed that from my alias).
