Hello

Hi everyone.

My nameís Dan and Iím rapidly getting addicted to fishkeeping after buying a 60-litre fish tank for my wifeís birthday a little under two weeks ago. After letting the tank settle for a week we may have got things off to a bad start (although the guy in the shop didn't foresee any problems) by buying four male Dwarf Gourami to cycle it. Although there havenít been any problems so far, I am testing the water every day and plan to do a partial water change every week or as and when Ammonia levels are high.

I particular enjoy using the Internet to find out about specific fish but will most likely come to rely on this forum for expert tips and advice!
