Attn. All Beginners
Welcome to the wonderful world of AC, and the aquarium hobby. You have found a great community of aquarium keepers who are passionate about this hobby, and who are increasing their knowledge daily. This is truly an amazing hobby with much to learn. That said, each of us must be willing to learn. You have come here seeking advice on how to best care for your new fish or advice on how to best setup your new tank. Please remember, the experience of most members here is measured in years, not days or weeks. some of us have spent 10+ years in this hobby, reading books, periodicals, and online articles about this hobby, as well as gleaning knowledge from fellow hobbyists. We do not give advice from the perspective of someone trying to make money (aka. your local fish store) but rather from the perspective of passionate hobbyists. Also, please understand that we are not going to lie to you or intentionally steer you in the wrong direction. We all have successful tanks, some with multiple successful tanks in many different niches of the hobby. If we advise you against a given course of action, we do so with the best interest of your fish in mind, and with your best interest in mind so that you will not become discouraged.
So, in short, please remember, you are coming here because you do not have the knowledge you need. We are here to impart the knowledge you need and to help you and guide you in the best possible direction. Please heed the advice you are given here, remember, we know more about this hobby than you do, and likely more than your "big box" pet store as well.
Sincerely, Concerned Member of Aquatic Community
