    Im so happy i finally get to setup my new (first) tank. i didnt end up getting the 40 gallon like i wanted but im more than happy with the 36 gallon bowfront :)

    still cloudy but this was about 25 minutes after running the filter, now its been on for about 3 hours.

    If you spend a little time researching the care requirements of the fish you want to keep, you can save yourself a lot of aggrevation and money :)

    What kind of filtration?

    You shold start out with hardy fish first if you want to do a fis-in cycle like get 4 zebra danios or something since they can be in a tank that large, but its your tank so good luck. :p

    It will be more pretty if you had plants in there but that just me. :D

    A fish in cycle is not something everyone agrees on konstargirl...theres no need to put any fish in the stres of cycling even if they are hardy....its just not fair to them ...

    I agree. Fishless is the way to go IMO... a lot less dangerous for fish, and a lot easier for the aquarist.
