I've just started aquarium-keeping as a hobby, though I researched it for like, 4 months beforehand. (I didn't want to get the tank until I moved out, and that took longer than I expected.) I'm starting to cycle my very first tank! It's a 5.5 gallon (it was the top-fin kit-thingy that came with a hood and filter) and I'm planning on getting a betta for it! I've been interested in snails and shrimp lately too though.
