Just starting

Hi, just introducing myself. A couple of months ago my daughter asked if Santa would bring her fish for Christmas. I said I thought it was a good idea and thought it would be relatively simple…. Fast forward 2 months and I’ve spent hours and hours reading, watching videos, cross referencing information and picking up as much info as I can as I quickly realised there was a bit more to this than bobbing a heater in a tank and picking a pretty fish 🤣
Anyway. I now have a 200l tank with a mix of live and artificial plants. Completed the fishless cycle and I put a bristlenose plec and 6 Sterba Corey in last weekend. Turns out there was a tiny unidentified fish in with the plec so I also have a baby of some sort in there which I’m hoping will make it. I’m rooting for him and after asking advice on one of the threads on here am thinking he may be a guppy.
I’m loving watching them, the Corey’s are so full of character! They spent hours today surfing the bubbles from the filter - I had no idea they’d be so playful. Looking forward to adding a few more fish 😁

Hi and welcome to the forum

You could always get your daughter some fish and chips for Christmas. You wanted fish for Christmas, there you go.
