Hello from Hoboken, NJ~
I am so happy to have found this forum where I can hang out (virtually) with all the fellow fish lovers.
I started my aquarium hobby in September 2013 when I got my first ever fish, a betta. And then I got another betta (a small femail baby this time) a few weeks ago.
I have two tanks. The 4 gallon Eheim aqua style is for the bigger betta, and the 2.5 gallon 'Great Choice' tank from Petsmart is for the female baby betta. I just recently re-decorated my second tank with plants from eBay and I will do the same for my first tank when I know how I want it to be done.
I plan to start a salt water tank with coral and Nemo in it (I know, lame...:-p) this summer. Right now I am doing all the research and getting all the equipment ready. I've purchased a 9 gallon Eheim aquastyle and protein skimmer. Soon there will be more.
