Newbie here...Take it easy on me!!

Hello everyone!!

My name is Andrea and I am about to get a 3 gallon tank going. Some friends of mine have a gorgeous 110g aquarium and they are going to be my salt water mentors. I'm never one to jump into something new without doing my research, and luckily I found this site! I am a member of a few other sites on different topics that are set up just like this one, so I know the wealth of information I can find on here!

I'm a freshy too, but lots of peeps here who know their poop.

Even doing a search on a word you come up with a lot of good info you might not need at the moment but store away in the old brain cells for later use.

Plus usually get a fast answer when you post a question.

Welcome aboard. Three gallons is pretty small. There wont be much you can put in there. I dont even think you`ll be able to have a fish in there.

I was told that I could have one. Is that not correct?

walmart sells 10 gallon tanks pretty cheap. I wouldn't think of starting with less because of water quality issues. the smaller it is, the harder it is. i know, i know that's reverse logic, but its true.

First, welcome to AA! Believe it or not, bigger tanks are easier to keep water parameters stable in, whether it be salt or fresh water. Your choices of what you can keep in your tank would greatly increase with an increase in size.
