Newb in Northern VA
For the past 5 years that I lived in Hawaii, I always wanted a fish tank. Now where I live, we can't have dogs so I finally convinced the wife that our 3 year old needed to learn about pets and we got a fish tank. Did I play that well or what! LOL!
So I'm starting with a 46 gal tank, and I'm going with African Cichlids. I admit, I'm completely new to keeping fish so I tried to do as much research as I could before taking the dive and starting my tank. BUT... Of course I missed a few things and I'm learning from my mistakes, but I've learned so much in the past 3 weeks it's rediculous.
This forum seems like a great place for information so I'm glad to be here.
