Hello, new to the hobby. Picked up a 20 gallon tank 2 weeks ago and learning a lot on the proper way to get started and set up. Should of done that prior but eh, you learn. Learning some patience and new things along the way.
Welcome. BigManAquatics is right; I think most of us started not only not knowing how much there was to learn, but not dreaming there was anything we needed to do other than buying a tank, filling it with water, and adding fish.
