Why, hello fellow fish lovers!
First off, let me just begin by saying I am by no means an aquarium expert. Goodness no. In fact, like many newcomers I've only very recently introduced myself to this seemingly rewarding hobby. A part from the occasional goldfish/Betta kept as a child, this will be my first time attempting to set up a community tank to enjoy. Literally, as of this post I have only been at this for four days now.
Despite my newness, I already feel I am becoming attached to the idea of owning at least one tankful of my very own wet pets. My family has always been one to become close with our animals, but I'm pretty sure they think I'm crazy for becoming so enthusiastic about some silly fish. And thus the reason I joined this site. I figured if anybody were to understand my new found joy for fish, it would be a forum full of aquarium owners of course!
As I speak I am watching my new little family members play out of the corner of my eye. Since I tried to learn as much as possible about tank cycling so I could do this thing right, my 20 gallon tank consists only of four Zebra Danios; Alpha, Shank, Stubby, and one I have yet to name. Giving them names probably wasn't the best idea seeing as with a cycling tank there are so many things that could go wrong... but I couldn't help it, they were practically asking for them!
Anyway, I'm rambling... I'll shut up now. The point is I really hope with the help of this forum I can advance evermore in this hobby and learn to be the best fish keeper I can. I'm excited to meet people that feel the same. :D
