Well...that is certainly not what I was expecting... O_O;;

I came here to learn...not be embarrassed. I never did and would never do anything to my fish because I intended to abuse them. I love fish and always have.

It was nice meeting those of you who weren't total jerks but I'm out of here. I'm not joining a forum where instead of constructive advice and suggestions, members are met with snarky remarks by elitist jerks. Thanks...but no thanks.

Thanks everyone. I'm probably just going to lurk for a while until I get a better handle on the forum.

It really hit me hard that someone who doesn't know me at all would accuse me of doing anything less than caring as best I could and doing everything to make my fish happy. I mean, I cried so hard and stayed home from class (college) to take one of my beloved goldfish back to my home to bury him. I love my fish. They have gotten me through some rough times and I have been up to my elbows in daily water changes to fix the new tank syndrome (fixed), went to get a handful of gravel from an established tank of a friend (which really helped), and am working really hard to fix my mistake because I really really want this to work out and never intended to hurt my fish.

Been scouring the forums for old threads relating to my problems (foamy water) and already got an answer to it, so I'm working on the other now. There is LOTS of good advice here so I'm really hoping to learn a lot. I also have a really banging fish store that I'm using instead of a chain like Petsmart. It's called Fintastic--they rock.

Here is a photo of my tank in the beginning-11/3/11:


Looking better-11/12:


A couple days later:


I'm really loving our new tank. Can't believe my boyfriend bought us such a neat project.

Er...I posted a big post...and apparently it ate it! O_O;;

Anyways, I'm thinking I'll lurk for a while. Not going to leave because there is a TON of good advice here. Already figured out one solution to my latest problem. Headed back to searching in just a second.

...watch my big post show up like 2 seconds after I post this. xD
