Hello From Sunny Central Florida

Hello everyone! I am pretty excited to begin this hobby for me and it should be fun. The picture I provided is my 55 gallon tank and stand i have just acquired. Believe it or not i got both for a total of $65!!!! I patiently searched craigslist for a month and found this baby at a habitat for humanity store and immediately got it. I have already checked and there are no leaks and everything is in order! I plan to go out this weekend to acquire the following things.
-Filstar XP2 Large Canister Filter
-Aqueon 300 watt heater
-40 pounds of light brown substrate
-plenty of fake plants and decor
-all other supplies that come with managing a tank

I plan on starting out with a community tank cycling with 10 neon tetras. Then after cycling adding some cory catfish, two angelfish, a dwarf gourami and I'm not sure what else. It is great to join a community with new and old fish goers.

Hello! Stop making us New Englanders jealous of your sunny/warm weather! Were snowed in up here!

On the flip side, I can wear jeans and a sweatshirt during 100* weather, too.

Lol. Besides, I always laugh when Northerners complain about the humidity and heat of the summer. I smile on the inside as they melt!
