I finally did it. Now learning, obsessing, and enjoying.

Hello Fishlore!

I've had my dad's old setup sitting in my garage since we moved here. I've wanted to get a fish tank up for years. Well, a month or so ago, we finally did it! My wife restained the base, we bought a new tank (the old one was looking pretty nasty), and we were off!

I've been through lots of learning and obsessing. I still am, but I've been through a lot, too (thanks Mitch). Filters, heaters, water, plants, fish; I love learning about it all. I'm still really nervous about the fish, especially when we put a new one in (and since we had a bunch die from an unfinished cycle in the beginning), but every day they survive I get a little more comfortable.

I love watching them and learning their behavior and quirks. That often makes me nervous too, but again, every day we make, I feel a little more comfortable.

So that's my intro. Look forward to being part of this community, learning, and helping where I can!
