Hi There
Hi my name is Bob and I am totally new to aquariums. The gradkids and I thought it would be a great project for the three of us. I look forward to discussing on the forums and learning all bout keeping fish. My grand kids are 6 and 7 and so I beleive it will also be a great experience for them.

you sound like a great grand dad, bob, some lucky grand kids you have there.

a great start may be to look into "fishless cycling" before getting any fish.

welcome to the forum!

Thanks Joey.

I am going through the process of a fishless cycle right now even though we are just learning what that actually means. saturday we are gettign three fish to put in the tank so we will have to see how that goes. Kids are really into it which is good.

Welcome bob, take a look at this article about cycling should help out a bunch, you defiantly don't want to add any fish until your done, and your only done when your tests come out right!
