The New Guy

It all started two years ago when I decided to get my daugther a 10 gallon aquarium kit from a big box store. We bought rainbow gravel, sponge bob everything, and fake neon plants. Luckily we didn't buy fish yet cause I knew we had to let the aquarium run for a few days or so I thought. After rising everything off and filling the tank, I googled how to set up an aquarium and found out about the nitrogen cycle and how long it takes to cycle a new tank. I decided to go with the fishless cycle and after a couple of weeks I got tired of waiting and added a few feeder goldies. That helped kick start the process and I fell into a rabbit hole that I will never get out of. Long story short, my daughter's aquarium is now mine and I several good looking planted aquariums. Worst part my wife hates my hobby.

I'm glad to finally be part of the community and not outside looking in. I hope to learn a lot from everyone and pass on my successes and failures.

Happy fishing!

I just saw this. Welcome to AA, eventhough my welcome was kinda late. Lol. But welcome just the same. Without AA, my hobby would have failed no question about it. I did all the no no in the fish hobby. Lol.
