Greetings

Hello fish fans. I'm new to the forums and thinking about returning to the world of the fish keeping. It's been 10 years since I have had an aquarium.

If I do this, and it looks like I will, I will be setting up the aquarium that I've always wanted and never had. I'm in it this time for the real deal. Yes, prior I was in to the whole water science thing and micro managing it. But I've never had a live plant, all natural eco-system in an aquarium before. This time it's serious 8)

I doubt I'll be diving in over my head with a giant aquarium . But no matter what size aquarium I get, I want to do it "right". And boy oh boy I have questions. I should say I will have ?'s. I've been reading and studying and pretty much know exactly what I want in equipment, fish, substrate, etc...

Yikes! What an intro post. Sorry.
tl;dr Hi. I'll be picking your brains.

Hey, welcome to the forum. Are you planning a saltwater or freshwater tank? What size aquarium do you hope to get? I find fish to be a very soothing hobby, getting the tank ready for them, introducing them, and watching them grow comfortable in the tank is a good feeling. Theres always something to do with the little ones, additions, water changes, etc.. The fun never stops!

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

Mr Demin,
I am going to go freshwater. Although salt water tanks can be beautiful with some really awesome fish, I prefer not to go that route. Maybe some day. I am really liking the bow front aquariums but do not want one of those in glass. I would prefer a bow front in acrylic. So 36g or maybe a 46g bow front acrylic. If I go glass I am thinking perhaps a 40g breeder. I want the depth. That's why I won't touch a 55g. Too skiny...
