The Addiction
Hello everyone!

My name is Ben from California, USA.

What turned out to be a "simple" goldfish gift to my daughter this past Christmas has turned into an addiction. I got the little guy well set up for now and now I want to learn everything there is to learn in order to keep a Freshwater "tropical" environment and hopefully moved to a saltwater ecosystem eventually.

I spent the last 3 days on the Computer searching and searching, hungry for knowledge. The wife was quite mad I got to bed by 2 AM all 3 days....LOL!

I know I am a newbie, I understand I know nothing about Aquariums and Ecosystems but I hope to learn along and also to pay it forward.

Thanks and Happy Holidays !!

My story, which can be found here...

is extremely similar... except I have, many years ago, kept a 10g aquarium. I'm now asking for petstore gift cards for my birthday in January to get a 29g tank and all the fixings. Good luck on your aquarium journey. The extremely helpful and friendly folks on this forum will help you learn everything you need to know.

And btw, your daughter is adorable.
