Hey guys, I just joined here. About two months ago I randomly decided it would be neat to have a fish tank. Realizing how complicated it can be, and how much there is to do in the aquarium keeping hobby, I've gotten pretty excited about it. I have a 20 gallon tank with only a few fish so far, but I'm learning how to do it and I want to do it right.
I have four von rio tetras, and I recently added a loach, two corys, a pleco, and a dwarf frog. Still memorizing all the names and such, but I'm getting there. Looking for a friendly community to help me figure this stuff out, since books aren't interactive and don't have all the answers. I'm hoping to learn from the pros here (at least people who have experience which I don't have).

Welcome to the wonderful AC!
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
