Hi everyone,

I'm very new to having a fish aquarium. I must say it's a lot different than I though. I have been doing alot of reading about it.

Right now I have a 20 gallon freshwater tank with 4 platties and three fry in it. The one platty had babies about three days after I got her. Talk about being indoctrinated into fish care in a hurry!!

Well anyway I'm glad I joined AA I'm sure I'll need your help.

Thanks in advance

Hi Cookie, welcome. Did you cycle your tank first?

Hi JoeD,

I did cycle the tank and all the fish seem to be doing well. I have the fry in a 2-way breeder and I'm feeding them Hikari First Bites. They all seem happy.
Thanks for the welcome
