Well, I have a Aqueon 10 Gallon LED Aquarium Kit - started cycling yesterday with a pinch of fish food flakes. First tank ever. I am going to stick with Tetras/Glo Fish - I know I can only have about 4 or 5 max. Right now a couple silk plants and three natural looking decor/hiding spots. Black substrate. I didn't bother with the stick-on thermometer that came with the tank. I bought a digital with probe.

And I am using Aquarium Note on Android to keep track of everything.

I have been reading a lot. And consulting my Petco peeps. Also have an Australian Terrier-woof and a Domestic Shorthair Tuxedo-meow.

Happy to be here!

Hee hee...I think I found the fish whisperer there - he was the dude everyone wanted to talk to - the people with ginormous tanks. So, I waited till he was free and nabbed him.

One of our petcos is like that. Sadly the guy only works 2 days a week or so...we pick each others brains. Some of the aquatics people there have told me i know a lot more than they do. I try to give them tips when i can.
