Hello new here.

Hello everyone names Matt but friends call me chewy. Not sure why but o well. Im a new fish owner have my first tank. Only got it because my kids love fish. I chose to sign up because I want to try and be the best fish owner I can be. I thought this place would be a great place to learn how to better care for my fish. I started two weeks ago with a starters kit and one betta fish. Now I have two betta fish in there own tanks and one ten gallon community tank with a hand full of fish. So yeah I think thats about it. Anything else people would like to know about me just ask.

Omg I'm new too. Not only to this app but I am new fish owner. Unfortunately, my crowntail betta fish died today. I only have one male betta now. The sad thing is it was the crowntail's 9th day with me.

Welcome guys. We're all still learning, and there's lots of good advice here.
Cycling is the hardest part for newcomers - just keep reading.


P.S. We like pictures.

Doesn't say whats in it. Says made for blocking ammonia, neutralizing dangerous nitrite and providing pH support and alkalinty. Made by caribsea inc. It's called ready water.

I find that hard to believe that'll work.
