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.
