To the best of my knowledge, there are 3 fish stores in the city where I live. One of them is a Big Al's, which is an aquarium chain store here in Canada. The other two are pet stores with large fish sections. I haven't been to any of them yet, but I'm planning on spending tomorrow shopping around to see which one I prefer. I've read mixed reviews online.

Hi, I'm new too, read your introduction and I totally relate with the anxiety depression and how soothing and calming the fish tank is! I can stare at mine for hours.

perfect, so in your case I'd say do the fish less cycle, shop around for the fish you like, add them all at once, that way if any have issues( most do from the store) you will not need a quarantine or hospital tank.

+1 I spend hours empty mindedly gazing into my tanks. Very relaxing. Water changes will too take your mind off of anything bothering you haha, you'll be too busy concentrating on not flooding your apt.

I'm so sorry you have to deal with the same problems. I know they're difficult. I'm really looking forward to having my aquarium set up so I can get "lost" in it, haha.

At least if I flood the apartment, I won't have to worry about fires anymore. Right?
