Welcome to AA! Fishkeeping is a very rewarding hobby! What kind of tank are you setting up?

Welcome to AA!

Yeah, its pretty therapeutic. My tank is in a spot where I can just lay on my couch and watch it at my feet.

WELCOME TO AA
Hmmmm, you don't have to cycle a dog, but the fish will be calming once the tank is established!

I set up a 15 Gallong tank with 4 tetra's, and a couple other smaller fish.
I'm fighting my first round of hazy brownish water.. been cleaning the thing but I think I just gotta get rid of some of the rocks (I'm pretty sure I've got way too much ) and I've got the thing overstocked I'm sure

I'll take a pic and post it for advice once I get things up and running smoothly.. right now I'll keep my nightmare to myself
