More than glad to help. I started my first aquarium in Dec. & thank goodness my husband found this site. Thanks to all the helpful people here, I have 3 beautiful & healthy tanks. Shudder to think where I d be otherwise.
My first tank came with a goldfish, 2 black tipped sharks & a common Pleco with bright blue, crumbling gravel & a filter with no media in it at all. Rehomed the fish, threw the gravel away & started over.
