Hello from Texas
Hi folks I look foward to learning to take care of my new tank properly so the fish have a long, healthy , and happy life. I've been reading around the forum a couple days after setting up my first tank and I hope I didn't goof already. Advise seems to differ widely from friends to petsore to petstore. You guys on this forum seem to generally agree on most stuff so it makes me feel better taking ya'lls advise. Thanks in advance for the help and maybe i'll be able to contribute back someday.

Welcome to the forum!
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
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.

Hello and welcome.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
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.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
