    Hello everyone. Im new to the forum as well as being an aquarist. I dont know much at all so I joined up here hoping to learn from you guys.

    At my work we received a fish tank and I was put in charge. Im having a good time with it and I want to get one for my own but Id like to become a little more experienced. Hopefully you guys can help me out and teach me a thing a or twenty. ;)

    Thanks for having me!

    Well we started with some fine gravel, 3 plastic plants, and a little rock with a hole in it. The tank is an Aqueon bowed 10 gal or so and it came with a external power filter, heater, and hood light.

    I set it up and let the temp adjust then we got fish to start the famous Nitrogen Cycle. 4 guppies and 3 mollies.

    Sounds like your off to a good start =D
    Both your fish types are live bearing fish, and if you have a female of either you can expect babies.

    Be sure to snag a photo and make a post in our Fish photo and video section =3 The Fish/non-planted section ^^

    And, if you have specific questions, ASK! =3 We have a rather large article section, full of all sorts of great information!

    Thanks for the welcome guys :D

    And thanks for the info as well

    Excellent. The link to the cycling page you provided led me to another link you shared. When I decide to start my "at home" tank I'll try using the fishless method. Far less discouraging.
