Knowing that you don't need anything complicated for live plants would have been nice too now that I think of it....

Here's a question I've always had. Is the flouride they add to tap water harmful to fish?

Stock issues
My first tank was a ten gallon, with a Jack jempsey, an auratus, a dinosaur bichir, 2gouramis, and a common pleco. Talk about a recipe for disaster! Also, cycling was a big one. If I'd known about that I would've saved myself much stress and money.

Not long at all. Then my husband started buying me books as a hint hint. Lol! Actually none of them died! I just rehomed all but the Jack and the bichir which I miraculously was able to get them to cohabitate in a larger tank by themselves. I learned the hard way, but sometimes that's the best way.

How addicting it is. I'm getting an already set up 29 gal tonight, with a beautiful stand, a fluval, 3 fish ( all peaceful ) and all of the other goodies for $80.00.

The thing looks BRAND NEW.

I have to agree with knowing how addicting it is. I started off with getting a 10 gal for my daughter because she always wanted to look at the fish when we went to the pet store. We now have 2 ten gal 1 two and a half gal 1 sixty gal and 1 twenty nine gal. I want another 60 at least to do a salt water. all my tanks are fresh water at this point.
