New to the forum and to the hobby

Hey guys, my name is Sami, I've been lurking here for a few days and I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm starting my first semester on a college campus in January and I'm super excited. The idea of four years with nothing but people to keep me company is a scary prospect so I plan on setting up a small tank to keep some fish (probably a betta and maybe a couple shrimp). I'm planning on planting it pretty heavily to cut down on the need for water changes which is how I came across this forum. Now I'm super excited by the prospect of not only using plants to suck up ammonia/nitrates but also to try and make a decent scape. It's gotten to the point that I've been daydreaming about how to set it up in class.

Welcome! Jot a couple of those daydreams down. I have had what I thought was a great idea in my head and totally forgot the idea.... maybe I'm just old though. You're just going into college so you may be safer!

Thanks guys xD I'll try to jot things down while still look like I'm paying attention. Super exited.

I had an unfortunate accident that lead to the death of my betta fish. Determined to provide a better home this time.
