New at this

Hi everybody,
I am a college student at Cal Poly in California, and i have had a pet turtle for a year and a half now, and i just started getting into fish keeping. I used to have a 45g tank in elementary school that i got to pick the fish for, but my dad took care of (so not really mine!). And now i am in the process of cycling my first tank.

Im still pretty confused on the process, but its a 10g tank (i wanted bigger, but i couldn't afford any larger than that.

I know its a bit small, but i eventually plan to get 1 small red tailed shark, some ghost shrimp, and four schooling fish, but im not sure which.

Hopefully after i graduate, i can get a bigger tank, and move the fish to that.

Welcome to AA Check out the article in my signature on fishless cycling, that should make it less confusing for you. And you'll want to re-think your stocking. a 10g is too small for a red tailed shark
