Cool Hi!

Hey there everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself!

I am new to the hobby and am extremely excited!

I have to say that I don't think I have ever kept any fish up until about 4 1/2 - 5 weeks ago. But, now that I have, I LOVE it!

My first endeavor started with a Aqueon 20 gallon Deluxe starter kit. It has now been running almost 5 weeks. My stock consists of three black neon tetras, one red wag platy, two sunset platies, one dalmatian molly, and one tequila sunrise guppy.

It has been an interesting learning experience, and I have been doing everything I can to gather knowledge about the hobby. I was extremely excited when I came across this website and saw how much information it had! Not to mention all the fantastic pictures and videos!

Anyways, I'll leave it at that for now!

Hi, and 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]
