New to the boards!

Hi there!
I'm new to the boards, and kind of new to the world of aquariums as well. I had a 10 gallon when I was a kid, but my mom mostly took care of it.

I got into this in kind of a weird way; my boyfriend and I got into hermit crabs and we ended up getting too many for the 10 gallon they were living in. We were hunting around for something else to keep some of them in, and I happened to find another 10 gallon tank with a filter (and the remains of the previous occupants, ew) at a garage sale for $10.

Well, the boyfriend ended up building a huge crab habitat, and we were left with two empty tanks.
I came home from work one day to find one of them set up with the filter going, and you can't have an aquarium set up without fish.
We currently have a couple of guppies, a pair of x ray tetras, and two mollies.

The crabs are living happily ever after in their new space, and the second empty tank is now home to two frogs. Those last two are more my boyfriend's doing.

Anyway, that's my little tale, and I'm looking forward to learning more about our fish and aquariums!
