Hello all, another newbie here.
I look forward to gaining a bunch of great advice from the more experienced members here. I live in an area where there are no real "expert resources" to talk to, so I have hopes this forum will help fill the in the gaps.
This is the first aquarium for both my boyfriend and I. We currently have a 5 gallon tank that we have introduced 2 dalmatian mollies into. We have plans to begin a 20 gallon as soon as we can find one in our price range and after more research, of course.
(:

Welcome to AA. You will soon find out that MTS is a very contagious and pricey disease. Multiple Tank Syndrome.

I'm thirteen and started a couple of months ago. I've learned about 100% more than I knew before, and now have five tanks and am planning at least two more. Lol.

Welcome to AA, I hope you enjoy the forums!

Haha, yes. In this short time I have found out that it is quite pricey AND addictive. When money and space permit, I have a feeling I may be in a similar situation with multiple tanks. The astounding variety of fish leaves too much temptation to only have a few kinds. (:

Thank you, those are definitely good places to look. I've been browsing them for a few days and have found a few promising leads. Unfortunately, the college student's budget doesn't allow for most of them.
