    Hi everyone!

    I'm thinking about getting into aquariums again, and Cyberra pointed me in this direction. :) I've had an aquarium a couple times in the past (oh boy, do I cringe at what my parents set up for me when I was in kindergarten!), but I still consider myself a raw beginner.

    I have a couple tanks and some equipment (a maybe-5 gal hex tank with bottom lighting from when I was little, and a much more recent purchase of a bow-front 5 gal that has a built-in filter, and I have a grow light, heater, and thermometer for). As I get money and materials, I want to eventually set these both up as planted betta tanks. The bow front will be easier, since it needs less cleaning and equipment, and has a better lid for it.

    I actually did major research the last time I had an aquarium (when I got and set up the bow front the first time), so there are some tidbits of knowledge still stuck in my brain. However, the main website/tutorials I relied upon the first time seem to now be defunct, so I'm going to have to rebuild my knowledge base from scratch.

    Hi and welcome to the AC....I recommend reading most, if not all, of the stickies in the beginner's section to refresh yourself on some of the basics.

    "Hi" and welcome to the forum.

    Welcome to the forum

    I would suggest to read up on cycling (links below in my sig)
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
