Talking 20 Gal Marineland Biowheel with LED hand me down

Greetings all!
I am excited joining this forum and looking forward to gaining more knowledge and insight into being a better aquarist.
I have kept fish as a hobby for a long time. (3 - 4 years in the US, and 3 - 4 years in India) Now that I have 2 active tanks (a 10 gal and a 20 gal) with a spare 6 gal, I am taking my hobby to the next level. I will soon upload photos and videos of my tanks once I test the water in the 20 gal and add fish.
Looking forward for a long and insightful relationship with this community!
Cheers
-Ashish

Welcome :)

So are there some big differences in the hobby between India and the US?

Thanks ladayen :)
Oh yes! it is much expensive here. The inventory in the LFSs here is much larger and varied. The water here is a lot harder than in India. I don't remember adding any chemicals to my fish tank! As the temperatures there did not vary as much as they do here, I did not need a heater. I did put ice in the tank a few times though. We did not have big pet store chains like petsmart and petco in India. So we could get everything custom made and cheap! No DIY required :)
