newbie from UK

Hello peeps,

we are very new to topical fish keeping and are having a few teething problems.

We started a tanks for our daughters 11th birthday after months of nagging from her, and her dad.

hope that you will all be able to help me with the new hobby as as usual it is left to mom to look after them. I don't mind I am quite pet friendly.

thanks in advance for any help that may come our way

Hi there. I'm also from the UK. What size is your tank? Is it cycled? What do you have in it?

I have a 15 gallon with 8 White Cloud Mountain Minnows, 3 Chinese Hillstream Loaches and 2 Nerite Snails.

Good luck in the hobby!

Fantail Goldfish - Carassius auratus, Hillstream Loach - Pseudogastromyzon cheni, Zebra Nerite Snail - Neritina natalensis, Assassin Snails -Clea helena, Amano Shrimp - Caridina multidentata.
