Exclamation Fng

Hello all. Just started in this hobby.

Bought a 46g bow. Currently cycling.

Signed up at MFK a few weeks ago and I'm already sickened by the over-moderation and random craziness by the moderators. Seems the community is too big and the moderators just don't care about anything or losing long time good members.

Anyways... Hoping this is the place to set up camp and stay awhile.

Plan on getting a wolf fish. (Hoplias Malabaricus)

I'm not a noob to forums and I know everyone expects pics of my tank... The gf's camera is missing and my cell takes horrid pics. Plus I don't have the correct lighting. It is coming along nicely though, I'm really liking it. Spending a ton of money... didn't realize how addicting and expensive this hobby is. I don't even have a fish yet! (Besides Zebra danios)

3d "roots" background. Black sand. Some nice pieces of driftwood I found on ebay, and a handful of live plants. (I'd list them if I could remember what they are)

I'll stop rambling... I've been reading everything I can on the hobby, I'm sure I'll have a few questions for the expects.

Hey Strand, Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping! There are lots of freindly people here! I have only been a member for a few months now and haven't seen or heard of any bad things here. Everyone is nice and very informative on the forum. I haven't meet a person yet that wasn't willing to try and help answer a question or try and figure out what the answer is to a problem. Once again Welcome!

Hi Strand

Welcome to TFK. You'll find lots of good people and advice here and we look forward to your pics. and progress.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
