CQ CQ CQ

Hello everyone, my name is Jay and I'm new to, uh, aquaristics. After having forgotten how much I had wanted an aquarium for so many years, I received a 25 gal with the Eclipse hood (the whole Marineland show combo) for Christmas. It's exciting to plunge into a new hobby.

I came across this site during some surfing after getting my setup, but then I really discovered how useful it was when I was looking for info on Bio-Spira--I had found the Fish Store but was looking for feedback on them when I found several Google hits here. That was when I joined.

I've mainly just searched for info here, but I did make one previous post on a bad experience I had with a battery-powered gravel vacuum in response to a query on those devices.

I have a lot of questions now, and I'll be posting in other forums....

P.S. This was also where I found out about Melafix and Pimafix when I had a severe case of fin rot with one of my new swordtails added at the same time I added Bio-Spira. Didn't want to destroy the new bacteria--and the fish healed up well with the safe meds.

I used to do 2m and 440, but I haven't done much lately, sorry. I was just trying to think of a clever thing to say as a subject line in this particular forum.
