freshwater newbie
well I will be as soon as I get a stand then a tank..:) It's not gonna be a big tank just something small to start 20g or so..It's for my 6 year old boy who has wanted a tank for couple years now, so as I'm reading the posts it seems more complicated then I thought cycling, ammonia levels etc...If I get everything new how long till I can put fish in the tank? And is there a good book I can buy to get me started, what kind of lights are in those glo tanks? hmm if anyone has any ideas I'd appreciated it thanks

Welcome to the forum! If you go fishless it will be much easier on you, and you can get your son involved with the testing etc. so it's still fun. It takes about 6 weeks. The process with fish takes about the same time or longer and is a lot more work. Here's a good article that explains a lot. Good luck!
