hi from chicagoland!

My name is Katie. I'm fairly new to aquariums. Not new to having pets though, been raising animals my whole life. I started a five gallon Betta tank in may, currently home to a beautiful purple and red veiltail.

Next week I'm setting up my 45 gallon freshwater community corner tank. Not sure on the exact stock yet, but I know I want an angel and a few cory cats. Its going to have a sand bottom, fake plants and driftwood. Would love real plants, but I'm definitely not a green thumb.

Anyway, ive been lurking around this site for awhile and decided to finally join!

Katie

I honestly order most of my fish online but the only one I commonly frequent is Aquarium Adventure in Hoffman Estates, it's by far the largest in the area.

Here is thread with some other local recommnedations.

Need to find a fish store

If your interested there is also a large cichlid club with swap meets, we also have load of other things such as tropical fish, supplies, and tanks. It's a great event.
