I realized today that I haven't formally introduced myself on the forum. I've been hanging out on the forums, reading and learning. Hi, I'm Ethan. I'm a college freshman, and also a freshman at fish-keeping! Currently I've got a three gallon tank with a guppy in it, but I'm in the process of cycling a ten gallon tank. I hope to get into some easy freshwater plants, as I really enjoy live plants anyway. I've got three java ferns in the 3 gallon, and I'm hoping to get some more low care plants for the ten gallon. I've always wanted to keep fish, but never made the move to set-up a tank. Both of my parents kept fish, and we had a long tank (don't remember what size) whenever I was young. Whenever we made our first move, however, the fish couldn't adjust to the new tank's water. After that, they never set the tank back up. It has been a tough battle being a poor college student and keeping up this hobby. I don't think I could let it go at this point though, as I am calmed and soothed every time I walk into my room and see Gealach (my turquoise guppy) and Dreamsicle (my orange shrimp) swimming around the tank. I just wanted to post on here and thank all of those who have helped me through all I've been through.
