New with 'inherited' fish tank.

Our friend's mother is no longer able to care for her 46 gallon fish tank and so it has been allocated to my husband and I. We have had a small 20 gallon tank in the past, but this one is a bit larger and full of fish that we know little about. (But I'll save that for an appropriate forum)

It feels like we have a mini zoo over here with two dogs, a cat, a parrot, and now all these little fishies!

I look forward to learning and being part of this community.

Welcome, and lucky you! Sounds like a nice tank. Are you going to keep it as is? Do something different with it? Does it have live plants? You can hopefully find out information about the new fish you have, by clicking on the "Tropical Fish Profiles".

I have a little zoo too. 2 dogs, 2 ferrets, 2 rabbits and leopard gecko and 2 tanks with fish and one small tank with Red Cherry Shrimp. Fun hobby. Hope you enjoy it here.

Hi Fable

Welcome to the forum. You should find everything to help you with your new fishies here. Good luck.

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

Hi Fable, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

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]
