Welcome to the forum Shane!

Welcome Shane.

I had no idea what was involved when I started either. I remember my parents buying tanks and fish only to have them die off within a month or so. Back then, no-one heard of cycling a tank or owned a water test kit.

You will learn a lot by reading the threads here.

What kind of fish are in your community tank?

Welcome, Shane!
Hopefully you'll be able to learn alot here on the forum, I know I did. I had kept tanks over 30 years ago so when I decided to set one up again a year ago I thought I knew all I needed to know. Boy, was I wrong! You'll get up to speed in no time. Do you have any pics of your fish & set up that you can share? We love pictures. :-)

I have no pictures but I do have my aquarium available for all tho see under the aquarium tab. I appreciate the welcome guys I hope to learn a lot and age well with the hobby. I will list my stock thus far. I have 1x blue gourami, 2x dwarf gourami, 2x sunset platys, 3x red wag platys, 1x black mollie, 1x guppy, and 1x plecostomus. As for the pictures I will try to get some up as soon as possible. Again thanks for the welcome.
