A beginner's first 75G
Hey folks, I've finally gotten the aquarium I've wanted for years. My wife and I agreed that once we bought a house she'd get a piano and I'd get an aquarium. Found a good deal on craigslist for a SeaClear System 2 75 gallon so here we go.
I don't have a lot of money or time to spend on it (2 small kids) and I don't expect to come close to some of the works of art that I've seen on this site. The reason I'm starting a journal is because over the last several months or so of lurking on this site and occasionally asking questions, I've found this to be the most encouraging and supportive "internet community" I've ever seen and I want to be part of it.
I hope to get some good advice and helpful feedback from you all, and hey, maybe there's another newbie out there that will learn from my inevitable mistakes.
So far, the tank has been running for less than a week. I bought a few plants and some feeder minnows three days ago. This weekend I'm going to check out another LFS in search of more (cheap) plants and a little moss.
