Happy 2013 everyone!

New member here, just joined your forum tonite!

I've not maintained a tank in over 10 years, but am so happy to have been given a 29 gal tank for Christmas.

I'm sure I'll have lots of questions to annoy the seasoned vets here

Cheers!

Bobby

I had never heard of the fishless cycle until 2 days ago. Seems like so much has changed since I last had a tank operating. But this forum clearly has a ton of valuable info.

I have a lot of reading & research to do..... The family is just going to have to wait for our tank to have fish

You're welcome. Always happy to help. I wasn't sure if you needed them or not but better safe then sorry. I started about a year ago, and was just searching the web for how to get a tank started. Luckily I ran into AA. I've learned so much here. I've still made a few mistakes, but have avoided tons of them. You can do a fish in cycle, but it requires a lot of work.
