I'm a newbie here as well...seems we have a bit in common...
I was into aquariums when I was little as well - (mainly bc of my father who had some serious MTS (multi-tank-syndrome)...although he had me to do all the dirty work - water changes, etc. LOL)
My daughter, who turned 5 on May 31, was the initial reason/excuse for getting back into the hobby. ...but since I also have a 2 yr old daughter, I've already got MTS and I just started my first fish-in cycle on Mother's Day...we currently have 3 tanks running & have 3 empty tanks that are calling my name!!
Best of luck to you ....this has been the best iPhone App I've downloaded! The ppl here are a family (from what I've read) - and I hope that both of us become deeply rooted into this wonderful family community of caring, knowledgeable people.
Well, I guess now's a good time to post my own intro & stop hijacking yours!! 😉 I'm sure I'll 'see' you around on here...
...I've also subscribed to this thread to follow your initial tank set up. 🌿🐌🌱🐠🐠🌱🐌🌿
