Hello new friends :)

Hi everyone! So I am new to the hobby. I have always wanted an aquarium but I spent the last six years in the navy and I moved around a lot, so I wanted to wait until I had a permanent residence to do so. SO, about two weeks ago I got my first aquarium, a 46 gallon bowed tank. I also have a few questions to help me get started which I will ask in the appropriate forum section. I plan on the tank being planted, not sure what kind of fish to put in it just yet, taking it one step at a time

Let's see, what else about me... I am originally from the Philadelphia area. In my time in the navy I lived in Charleston SC, Saratoga Springs NY, and Norfolk, VA. Did a couple deployments to the Persian Gulf and got to see some nice places in Europe. Now I am settled in Rockford, IL and working as a reactor operator at a nuclear plant. I enjoy weightlifting, mountain biking and the outdoors, messing around with my truck, big fan of extreme heavy metal, play guitar....that's all the big points I guess. Glad to be here!
