New guy saying hello
Hey guys, just wanted to jump in and say hello
I am semi new to the hobby as I used to care for fish as a youngster. At 28, I want to start up a tank again
I wanted to say that the free ebook has provided me with lots of new knowledge and I am grateful that it is around:)
Currently I am in the planning stages for my new set-up. I was originally going to buy new but decided that used would save me a bunch of cash. have a few possible tanks that I am inquiring about. Two are 29 gallon tanks, and one being a 68 gallon osaka 260. Im thinking the 68 gallon may be a bit large, but it is such a beautiful tank:)
cya all around:)

hello and welcome!If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
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.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

Welcome to the AC forum! IMO start with a smaller tank and then move up. It can be very frustrating if you start too large. I'd go with one of the 29g's.26 gallon- 1 Clown Pleco, 3 Rummy-nose Tetras

Welcome to the AC....
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Welcome to the AC! I have a differnet opinion on the purchase of a tank. I would get the bigger one, because I think bigger tanks are easier to take care off, plus you have more choices with stocking. Go for it!
