New to the FISH WORLD!
Hey everyone! So my brother recently got a fish tank along with his room mate and he got me instantly I'm starting a 55 gallon freshwater tank on Sunday. My dad used to have a saltwater tank back in the day and he has fond memories. My brother and I are trying to talk him into starting up a saltwater tank.....

I have been doing my reading online about cycling the tank and all that good stuff. The guy that I'm buying it from says he has everything that I need, which is nice.

Any little things I should know about starting up the tank??

Welcome to the forum and to fishkeeping! It's great that you're starting with a nice sized tank as it will be much more forgiving, and it's even better that you're doing some research before getting your feet (well, hands, in this case) wet.

Any ideas as to what kind of fish you're interested in?

Please ask any and all questions you can think of, as we'd be glad to help!
