Another newbie

Hi all!

I'm a newbie (obviously!) from Colorado. My hubby and I got a 45 gallon bowfront tank in January when we were looking into getting something for a blank wall in our upstairs living room. Since then, our hobby has become more of an obsession..."oooh, this fish is purty, we want that one!"

The major issue we're having right now is that we've got this funky algae growth that collects on our artifical plants, decor, and bubble wand, but after reading some posts, I'm going to try a 50% water change and leave the lights off (or on limitedly) for a few days to see if that reduces the algae growth.

Glad to have more fishy people around!
