Cool hi :) new here!

Just set up my first "real" tank. I have a tank set up in the preschool that I teach at, but I just set up my own.
I work at a pet store as the "fish" girl, so it was inevitable for me to be addicted.
So far, I have a 2.5 gallon with 2 pea puffers, 2 fancy guppies, and 2 panda cories.

Hi vitaminmandi, welcome to TFK! You have all those fish in a 2.5gl? Well, you work in a fish store so it'll be easy to upgrade to a bigger tank. So begins the addiction!

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

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have

Haha I know addictions, I keep tarantulas as well. I don't get discounts on livestock at work but after my 6 months I'll get 20% off. I think the highest I'm going to go for now is just a 10, until I get my own place.
I love my pea puffers but one passed away last night :[ they must be super sensitive.

Hi and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping.

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]
