Hi from Calgary Alberta Canada

So on a whim I decided I would like to see what an aquarium hobby is like... went out some time early March and bought a betta for work with a coworker who also picked one up and thought it was kinda neat so after a week I got the same little betta tank for home which sits at my home office desk. Because it doesnt have a filtering system or heater etc I pondered for a couple weeks about getting a bigger tank to possibly move my new friend into. Out of the blue on sunday while reading through forum posts, I promptly picked up my butt and ripped out to the pet shop and picked up my full blown tank kit!

So here I sit, empty tank.... trying to make decisions with the limited knowledge I possess, but I am making sure I take my time... I have zero experience but have been reading much information on forums and figured I should sign up and get some input from those who have been in the hobby for longer than I. My intentions are to create a fresh water mature planted tank that is pretty much self sufficient. Hopefully I can get lots of input and opinions!! Thanks and hope to chat with some of you soon!

New 31 Gallon Hagen Waterhome with 2 x 20W T8 6700K Life Glo tubes, Fluval 205 cannister filter, Aquaclear 200W heater, Marineland Stealth 150W heater, Hydor Hydrokable 50W substrate heating cable with Hydrostat thermostat, Hydor Ario 2 Blue aeration night light. Fully planted.

Welcome, to the forum and hobby. You might want to check out the Calgary Aquarium Society ( Calgary Aquarium Society ) . Clubs are always a good way to get into the hobby, and are a source of livestock and other supplies, usually at very good prices, through the auctions.
Join a fish club. Don't have one in your area? Start one.
