Advice: Without a solid understanding and active respect for the "nitrogen cycle" your fish will die. Don't throw away your money, effort, and emotions. However you don't need to be a chemist, biologist, let alone zoologist to be a good aquarium keeper. If you teach yourself the foundational basics you will create amazing tanks and enjoy keeping fish for many years to come.

Corals/Plants: Substrate:<br> Top Fin white peagravel (coated not best for benificial bacteria colonies, looks better than it functions)<br><br> Rock:<br> Native Minnesota Limestone Slate (keeps my KH up and helps balance PH and GH)<br> <br> Plants:<br> 2 types of anubias<br> lots of Javafern<br> some crypts<br> some vals<br> lots of various algae (amazing filters!, keeps my nitrates zeroed out, and dietary supliment for fish)<br> never had an algae bloom (green water)<br>
Tank Size: 55 gallons

About Yourself: I got into the hobby accidently. Almost 1yr ago I helped my friends brother move and his recent x-girlfriend pawned off a full setup on me and my girlfriend (now wife, yikes). I thought dang i dont kno anything about this. So I started surfing the net, got hooked and the rest is history. And yes, I watch my tank more than tv and my wife does get a little jealous, but she loves 'em too.
