That was a great decision, one that I didn't make months ago when I started!

Read up on cycling, it is a pain to wait to put in fish, but well worth it! There are great sticky threads around here that will help tremendously, but never hesitate to ask questions. There is a ton of knowledge floating around this site and everybody is very friendly with their help.

Welcome to the forum! You are wise to do research before obtaining a tank and choosing which fish you want. You will find it is a very rewarding and addictive hobby! :D

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

Good idea.

That is what I did but do not be disapointed when "disaster handling" strikes (GOK that I have had my share)!!!

Many members of this forum can help when (not if) it strikes as you gain experience.

500 gallons? Just what is the size of such large tank? Would fit 100 harlequin rasboras or 50 altum angelfish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
