Advice: Research, Research, Research! You can never have enough knowledge. Always know what requirements the species you're interested in need (ex., goldfish can NOT live in a bowl), and learn everything you can about setting up a new tank- from cycling to planting to adding fish. The best kind of consumer is an educated one.

About Yourself: I got my 1st fish in 4th grade when my teacher gave it to me on the last day of school. It was a black molly (named 'Blackie'). I started with a very "faux" look (fake plants, red/black gravel, etc) but got pulled into the idea of natural. My tank's gone through a lot of changes- I don' think I'll ever settle on a look!!

COMMENTS

your tank looks great fishgirl!!!!! and yes its always fun to change things up. fish avatar
looks good, but it would look GREAT if you moved the heater to the side near the water current form the filter to dissapate heat. Also put a backdrop on it. fish avatar
