Fish Fun Fundamentals

Hiya

Matt in Illinois here and I'm new to this forum but not so new to fish-keeping. Currently, I have a 20G freshwater tank with an upside down catfish, 4 tiger barbs, 4 bolivian rams, and 1 african dwarf frog... all of whom are thriving. I also have a 55G freshwater tank, which I'm currently in the process of fishless cycling. The 55G tank will eventually become a cichlid tank. Thanks to Eco23 for the guide to fishless cycling as it has been an excellent reference!

I'm happy to help anywhere I can and learn more from you all!
