Exclamation Beginner that needs some help!

Hi, I am very glad I found this site today. I have spent most of my morning reading posts and trying to learn as much as possible. I have had my tank running for about 4 months. I am having a lot of difficulties keeping my fish living tho. I hope to meet some friends on here to help me learn. I believe my tank is about 45 gallons, and I have been so excited to learn about fish keeping. Altho, at this point I'm very discouraged, almost ready to pack it up and get rid of the whole set up! Looking forward to meeting some new people!

Welcome to TFK!

I agree, fish keep can be a headache at times, but once you figure it out, it's the best thing in your home!

maybe shoot over to another thread in our salt or freshwater section and decribe you're problem so we can start helping you...

sounds like its a 55G tank, as most a standard 55G is 48x12x18
