Newbie in Mississippi
After lurking this site for a few hours, I decided it would be beneficial to join because I learned some good info here. I don't have my aquarium set up yet as it was a Christmas gift and I have been out of town.
I've discovered while reading on this site that the 5.5 gallon aquarium I received is not going to be suitable for goldfish, but there are a a few species such as bettas, guppies, and/or tetras which will work well for a start.
So, I will continue to read, lurk and ask questions now that I am a member of this site. Thank you!!
