Hi from New Orleans!
My name is Lillian, and I'm a student in my last year of college. My boyfriend recently started working in a pet store, and has since become obsessed with keeping fish. We bought a 10-gallon aquarium kit yesterday, and put the gravel in it today. We are still looking into kinds of fish and trying to determine what we're going to put in there before we decide what plants and things to add, which is how I ended up here.
Besides becoming a new fish parent, I have a dog named Georgia, a husky/shepherd mix. Anyway, we are very happy to be here and to meet you all!

Welcome to AC! There are lots of knowledgeable people here. The advice you'll get here will be straight forward and honest. A 10 gallon tank is how it starts. I went from that to a 110 gallon lol. In a 10 gallon be very careful what fish you get. Research the size the fish will be when they are adults. Also research what fish do well with each other. If you have ANY questions feel free to ask :)110 Gallon New World Cichlid Tank

Welcome. But, first things first. Read up on cycling your tank before any fish are added. This could take a few weeks before it's ready for inhabitants. Patience, then the fun. While cycling, there's plenty of time to window shop for fish and then read up on each one that interests you to see if they will be happy in the environment you provide. And of course, post here where members who have experience with your choices can give you valuable information.
