Hi! First off, welcome to the hobby! Know that this hobby takes a lot of work and isn't cheap. You should research all about the nitrogen cycle and any fish you may get. Everyone here is really kind and should be able to help you with any questions you want. Also, if you start here, later on expect multiple aquariums. I have been doing this hobby for about 3 and a half years, and I now have 13 aquariums ranging from 5-130 gallons. Good luckHey everyone.....Thanks for having me. I do not have a fish tank but am interested in getting 1.....59 years old and looking for first fish tank.....lol. Looking for any advise you have.
Actually, I disagree. Bigger tanks take much more work and dedication. I suggest starting with something like a 10-20 gallon, maybe a 29. I feel you should start small and see if you like it then if you do like it you can upgrade. However if you decide you don’t want to keep fish you don’t have a massive fish tank to sell.Welcome! You're going to love it! When you think about a starter tank....bigger is definitely better.
Hi! I would very much agree with that! I spend at least 2 hours each day on my tanks (most days longer than that), it’s very fun!Welcome! It is fun! And veeeery addictive! I spend way too much time on my tanks. But I really enjoy it. Returned about 22 months ago after 30ish years away.
I like my 29 g for ease of water changes, maintenance, and stocking options.
Of course, that one is now sitting empty but I’ll probably set it back up after I finish with my 10 g holding tank.
