Hello there Fish Gurus!

I am new in this forum and new with a tank. I actually just got a 10 gallon tank this week. I hope to get it ready to welcome my plants and fish. I know it is going to be a long process even with a low tech tank but I hope to get some advice along this journey

Welcome! You've come to the right place, that's for sure. This is a great community with knowledgable and helpful members. And being in New York is an added bonus because a few members organize swap meets so we can get together to trade stuff and hang out.

Thank you guys for the BIG WELCOME lol. I have actually been to one of the meets and that's when I started thinking about FISH FISH FISH FISH!!!! I am pretty excited, I didn't really have time over the week to set up the tank properly, but I did get a filter and added some substrate. It's been two days since the filter has been working. I am going to test a couple of plants this weekend.
