I joined AA because I have a drinking problem, I don't know why everybody keeps talking about fish all the time ... *womp womp* LOL

Seriously though, last year I was researching like crazy as I knew I wanted a tank, but didn't know where to begin. I came across a thread on this forum through google called the Almost Complete Guide to Fishless Cycling. I read that thoroughly and used it step by step to do my cycle.... Extremely helpful.

I joined other forums but found some people on them to be very condescending, and this one more helpful. So... I joined!

I now enjoy reading everybody's stories during my down time at work haha. I've learned a ton of info.

Initially I got a fish tank and was looking for an app to help me out and found the app for this site, realized it was a website, and joined after roaming the app for a couple months. And now I love it

I searched freshwater fish forums and AA was top of the list. Wasn't looking to really join, but after spending a few days, here I am. I've found so much helpful information.

They made me join! The fish that is... They were like you just dumped us in your new tank and think its that easy?!?! One guy wrote the name o this site on the glass and here I am!

Good thing too! What a fish in cycle I had, but were all happy now and I'm glad I'm here. I learned so much being a member and I'd like to think I've helped a few also.

I joined because I've been into aquariums long before the internet.... when, as a novice, you didn't have much choice but to listen to the advice of the lfs. Now, with places like this, you have all the knowledge you could ask for at your fingertips.

I Joined to refresh my memory...I had a 10 year Hiatus from keeping any Tanks. I lurked on here for a while, as I cycled my tanks. Get some opinions on Stocking since I was branching out of my comfort zone of SA Cichlids.
I remembered the a rule of Fish keeping that I placed on myself years ago that It is hard to know everything and this hobby unfortunately sometimes is Trial and Error no matter how much research do or advice you get. (Remember it's one part Chemistry and 2 parts biology as a wise fish Breeder told me once)
