greetings & salutations all from another newbie
greetings & salutations all ~
i discovered this great forum yesterday while reading up for my first tank. what a wonderful resource you all are!!! thanks for sharing your knowledge
i am going to 'dip my toe' with a 5 gal tank for a betta, hopefully planted. asked for the tank for xmas, then read that it is easier / better margin of error / more forgiving with a 20 or 30 gal. whoops, too late now...... stayed up most of last night reading the betta thread. learned lots! and am sure i will be asking tons & tons of ?s. fell asleep thinking: 5 gal minimum, filter, heater, low flow, no bubbling, cycling, water changes, testing....and more testing!
so please share your wisdom as i ask silly ?s and tell me when i am heading down the wrong stream
thanks in advance, you all rock

welcome to the wonderful AC. im glad you are enjoying the info. its true the bigger tank the more margin of error but a 5g isnt too tuff. if you are planting it then look into a cfl and shop light it works wonders.KING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!

No such thing as a stupid question here. I'd know... I certainly asked a lot of what I considered stupid questions.

Hello and welcome!When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
