Hi, folks! I'm new to AA.com and fish-keeping.
One friend suggested that my home needed something "living" besides me. Another said that, according to Feng Shui, a fish near the front door brings wealth into the house. Although I love dogs, I'm not home enough to do one justice, I'm trying to sell my house, and I needed a relaxing hobby. So, starting an aquarium was the logical choice.
My sister and nephew, visiting from my hometown of Buffalo, NY, helped get me started. I have a 20-gal
. freshwater tank with 5 tetra serpae, a wonderful piece of driftwood, and a few aesthetically pleasing (but plastic) plants.
I'd appreciate any advice from you experienced aquarists.
