I am brand new to forums. I love fish! I love everything about them. I am a wierd fish lover though. I love fishing, as well as aquariums. I just have an all around admiration for fish I guess. I am just starting out on the fish keeping front. There is a lot more to it than everyone I know thinks so they all think I am crazy and kind of annoying about them. I do have a fish expert for an older brother (he has 2 100 gallon saltwater tanks going for the past 10 years now.) But he is an expert on Saltwater, where my interests are in freshwater. I am an avid Catfisherman (or woman if you wanna be PC on the matter haha) I am simply obsessed with Catfish! My dream tank would be a catfish tank. I am currently cycling a tank in preperation for a Betta that I am taking from a friend who is moving here in May, and have a 10 gallon which will be a disater (long story but did make a thread about that one already) I may be highly inexperianced with keeping an aquarium (I had 2 growing up and know some basics) but dont hold it against me. What I lack in experiance I make up for in determination in keeping animals happy and loved as well as I am willing to learn as much as I can. I dont work so I have all the time in the world to spend on animals.

Hello and if you do care for the fish's wellfare, then read up on cycling a filter - without that knowledge, most fish put into a new aquarium are doomed to die ... . See the beginners thread and read the details on the how to relative to both the fishless and fish cycle. Then you will be more ready than I was!!!Knowledge is fun(damental)
A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is fifteen Sterba's Corys. Filters: canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber that removes phosphates and nitrates! Also, a highly dangerous commercial nitrate removal unit from hell
