new to the hobbie.
Hello, my name is Derek and I am new to the hobby of fish keeping. I currently work at a PETCO and they are wanting to make me a secondary aquatics specialist because I know a few things about fish despite never actually owning a tank (until around 2 weeks ago.)

I'm happy to say that my 10 gallon tank that I set up is doing pretty good. The cycling is kind of stressing me out a bit but my fish are doing good and don't appear to be stressed.

I hope to learn from this forum about proper fish care and be able to spread some of the knowledge that I obtain to people whom I interact with at work.

welcome. I dont know if I would call this a hobby, its more of an addiction

thanks all. I too can see this quickly turning into an addiction.
