I ran across this site a couple months ago when I was looking for information on how to do a fishless cycle. Love these forums... tons of information!
I finally managed to cycle my tank after reading through a ton of posts here... it tested my patience greatly, but I stuck it out and was finally able to add fish yesterday.
I posted a "thank you" to eco23 and librarygirl in the "fishless cycle" thread for all of the knowledge they have shared, and I was requested to post some pics of my fish when I got them.
I uploaded some pics to my gallery, but it won't let me link them in my post. (gives some error about how I shouldn't link files)
Anyway, just wanted to say "hello", and I look forward to joining the community
