Hey guys,
I was thinking about picking up Fish keeping. Only problem is I have no idea what to do and wouldnt mind a little help. All I know about fish is FEED THEM and CLEAN THEM.

Hi John,

fish keeping is a fun and rewarding hobby. dont be intimidated by not knowing much...everyone has to start somewhere.

I'm sure you will find all the help and advice you need here.

if you are a total beginer i would suggest that you start with a freshwater tank. there is very little room for mistakes in saltwater but freshwater is more forgiving. you will also want to learn about cycling. do you know what size tank you want (or already have) and what types of fish you want? if not you should start there.

i wont go any further (i dont want to give you an overload of info). just let us know what your situation is and what you are looking for. and most of all... enjoy the hobby!!!!
