New: taking steps to learn

Hi all, I just joined the community.
I realized that I have become a perpetual newbie to aquariums, and I'm trying to reach a little higher level of ability. I have had a 29 gallon aquarium for 5 years now. I thought my skill level would grow with keeping an aquarium of semi-aggressive fish, but I seem to have plateau-ed during year one. I'm happy with what I keep, but I want to grow a little. This community looked like a good place to do just that.

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to TFK We're glad to have you aboard.

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

Hi, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum. I'm glad you joined us.

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]

Welcome. Just realise, you'll never know everything. :P Right when you think you know something, you find out that a scientist proved last week that it wasn't true.
