Thank's Red Severem and Northernguy, i've only just finished my profile,it takes me a little while to find my way around.
While i'm here i've got a quick question.
What,s a good amount of fish for a 2' tank? I think this would be about a 72litre's.:help:

01-24-2009, 04:58 AM
Welcome to the AC Slimey. As for a good amount of fish in your tank, there are a lot of variables there. It would help a lot if you were to specify what fish you have, which you've done :) exactly how many, and what, if anything else you are planning on getting. I've found though that listing all the specifics can really help people help you. I'm not an expert, and I myself am pretty darn new here too so I have a few other suggestions that may help.

Mistake wise, the people here are very helpful, and won't mind most of what you do/say. My best advice is to stay away from cursing or swearing, no one here is gonna appreciate that, and since i have a pretty dirty mouth i have to constantly keep myself aware of that. It is a family forum, perfect for you and your son!

I would recommend reading the E-book, good info there. And never hesitate to ask a question, I have yet to get a bad answer around here, and I'm not expecting it anytime either. Browse the forum a bit, just check things out. and don't worry if it takes a while to get everything figured out. Like i said, if you have a question, ask away!

Most of all, enjoy your time here, I'm sure you will.
