Howdy from frozen Tennessee

Hello everyone, my name is Randy. I'm 23 yrs. old and live in Cookeville, TN. I recently set up my parents 20 gal. aquarium in my room since they were gonna take it down and put what few fish were left (2 plecos and a cory cat) in a bowl. I love aquariums and couldn't stand to watch those fish die in a bowl, so I cleaned it up, set it up, had the pet shop check my water often, and then when they give me the ok, gradually started adding fish. Right now, I'm up to 3 neon tetras, 3 cherry barbs, 2 platys, 1 koi angelfish, 1 American Flag fish, and the 2 plecos and 1 cory that I inherited, oh, and also some live plants (not sure what they're called). I'm waiting on a cobalt blue dwarf gourami to arrive at the pet shop in the next few days and then my tank should be complete, don't wanna overcrowd. I've never took care of my own tank before, so I'm full of questions and if yall get tired of 'em, just say so haha. Anyway, just wanted so say "hello" and I look forward to learning alot from you folks.

Hi Randy,

Welcome to the forum. Good job on the fish rescue too :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
