Hello, I'm very new on this site too Some people on the fish yahoo answers are incredibly self righteous. I've spent alot of time there and often been very frustrated. So many people on there judge really harshly, and it's as if they've forgotten what it was like as they began the hobby..and maybe the mistakes they've made. The fact is there's lots of us started out knowing nothing about what we were doing and learned the hard way. To those of you that researched everything to high heaven before you had your first tank, kudos, that's awesome...but I didn't have the internet back when I had my first tank...I had never heard of the nitrogen cycle! It never occured to me that a pet that cost two dollars was something that required research. You live you learn. Ppl here don't seem to get so judgemental..more helpful

it's so true! I really didn't like how yahoo were just like you said, act like they never started off, just always knew, and it's nice that people do research before, but I mean... I was taught the wrong things about caring for fish, and it's cool to have other people understand that
