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.

Awesome!! Thank you for having SO MUCH patience!! and cycling this tank first. Woohoo! In all my years of fishkeeping 40+ I never knew about the Nitrogen Cycle until I came here. I shudder to think back on my mistakes. LOL And it all makes a WHOLE LOT of sense now.

Welcome!! We're glad you joined us. Keep us posted on when you get your first Betta. Are you thinking of a fancy one?

I'm not super sure, but I think I'll get a plakat. I don't have a breeder or a good local fish shop, so I'm at the whim of the local Petsmart.
