Hi guys, just joined last night and thought I would introduce myself. I've wanted to keep fish for years now and finally got around to setting it up. Still at school so I was buying things bit by bit, but came across a second hand 3 ft tank with a lot of equipment for $150 a few weeks ago. Finally set it up last week and currently cycling/ waiting for cloudy water to clear up (suspect this is from the sand, which I neglected to wash). It's half sand, half dirted with gravel cap.
I put a few stems of Wisteria in, hoping to make this a planted tank and it's surviving so far, looks like it's melted a bit. However it looks to have some new shoots that look healthy and hopefully I can keep them that way before adding some more plants. I also have a few pieces if driftwood that I plan to add after treating it, to fill up the empty space a bit.
Planned stocking is neons, cories and pearl gourami (unsure of how many yet, we'll see). Possibly another small school and some kuhli's. For now though it's just the hard process of waiting.
Loving the forum so far, hope to be a part of the community
