My name is Jay and I'm a 27 year old software engineer / landscaper / entrepreneur. I recently bought my first tank from a neighbor, it came with a lighted LED
hood, biowheel filter and heater. He also had it cycling water for months with no intervention so we emptied water out into buckets, moved the tank to my place and then put the water back in. I let it sit for about 5 days before putting any fish in to let the water settle back to reasonable conditions.
After spending hours doing research on what fish and plants would work for the water conditions I had to work with. I went to a few local pet stores and couldn't find any fish that I had researched. Settled on the Rosy Barbs and Sterbai Cory which I'm really happy with.
This experience and discussions with friends who have been in the hobby for years led
me to develop software to help with this problem. I don't want to spam, so I won't post it - just message me if you'd like to know more about that
Anyways, I hope to learn a lot from the forums here and I already have which is why I decided to make an account and I hope that one day I'll be able to contribute back.
