newbie on the block

Hey guys!

Here for my introduction:

My name is Cherise but my nickname is Cherry. I got the nickname b/c years ago my hair used to be bright red and my friends called me a Cherry Head and others caught on and started calling me Cherry lol. Anywho, I'm here to learn as MUCH as i can about my aquarium and how to properly maintain fish. I used to keep bettas years ago and i had "Beyonce" and "50 Cent" for 2 years and then they died :-( and from then on I stopped. But now I wanted a 20gal aquarium and hopefully get bigger after i master the 20gal. I started my tank on 4/15/2011 and I tried to cycle the tank using Black Skirt Tetras...unfortunately they died the same day and from then on I knew that I needed advice on how to maintain my tank. So far I've learned a lot about cycling and other neat little tid bits that I had no clue about. I currently have 5 leopard danios in my tank and have been doing regular water changes with my friend at Petco to establish a healthy tank. So far the danios have been doing great! I would like to have a community tank with Tiger Barbs and i'm not sure what else but hopefully you guys will be able to to aid me in that choice. Well that's all i have to say...if you want to know anything just ask!
