Hello everyone!

I am new here and new to the world of fish as well. I joined because I'm hoping to get an aquarium started up soon but I want to know what I'm doing first. I started a thread with some questions I have so if anyone has any advice for me please feel free to share!

Other than that I am 22, in college (hopefully graduating soon), work as a receptionist at my vet's office. My passion in life is horses. I love to ride. I'm looking forward to getting to know the people here and learning a lot!

Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum, and the hobby. Glad you are doing your research first; many of us got our first tank, had trouble and lost fish, then looked for help. You're doing it the better way.

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]
