Working from being new to being informed.

Firstly can I thank you for such an informative and easy to naviagte site.

My name is Vicki, I have owned a fish tank for 7 years.
First was a standard 10g, basic set up from store.
Second was a 20g. (Increase was due to a golfball incident from my lil one)
Current tank is a 40g. Still basic.
Fish habitants:
7 year old Plecostomus approx 10" long (He has been through alot but going strong)
1 year old African Butterfly fish approx 1 1/2" (Not escaped yet)
2 'Goldfish' (Got to love those $40 fish)

A recent new occupant death in my tank has made me pay more attention to the small details and issues I have and hopefully gain a little knowledge and understanding on how to keep my guys happy for the long haul.
After upgrading my tank to the 40g I have noticed that there is alot more to work on than the standard pwc and nightly feeding the little tanks had.

Having a few water conditioning issues and fully reading the 'Fishless cycle'. makes me sad I did not find this sooner!

Thanking you greatly for all the advice I am currently read through.

I WILL have a happy tank.

Thanking you in advance

I have actually thrown some questions out there and everything I had asked was promptly replied too.

I really appreciate being able to ask questions without looking like a dork for not knowing.

There is so much information on here if you browse around in the appropriate forums.
Not to mention I have also found answers to questions I was not even ready to ask about yet.

You guys rock!
