Hey everyone, I was searching around for some info on how to start up a fish tank and ended up at these forums and figured I'd join. Just bought a 20 gallon tank and added water to it tonight (doing freshwater), I plan on starting to cycle it tomorrow. So far just having the tank up and running has me excited so I'm hoping this will be a fun new hobby for me.

Welcome to AA. This site has lots of people that love to help newbies!

I want to commend you for doing a fishless cycle. There are too many people that have been mislead by fish stores, and even one less is great. I was lucky enough to find AA before putting fish in a tank. I'm sure I would have messed up!

Well, as Goldfish said, we love pictures, *hint, hint*, and enjoy the forums!
