Hello from a new addict

WOW it is amazing how addicting this aquarium thing can be. About a month ago I got a 5 gal Fluval Chi for on my desk. I did some reading on stocking and such and put in a Beta a snail and a few ghost shrimp.
The kids loved it.... and were constantly bugging my while I worked. SOOOOOO I got them each a small tank for their rooms.
Two weeks later I bought a 55 gal complete from Craigslist and have been workin on a community tank.

Thanks to all whose posts I have read. This is a GREAT resourse for NOOBS.

I am not sure how to put the pics in the post ..... but if you click on my aquariums.... there are some pics there.

My kids each have a Betta... one male and one female, a small snail (both named Gary) and a ghost shrimp.

Welcome to TFK, Brian. We are glad you decided to join us. Yep, this hobby is very addicting. I hope I never recover, lol. The kids named both snails Gary?? That is so !

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I've got an apple snail in all of my tanks but I haven't named any of them. Maybe I should call them all Gary too?
