Re:looking to start a tank

Greg B

Well, it turns out every time I decide I’m settled on something, something else comes up that changes my mind… :blink:
This time it happened to be my girlfriend, she decided she wanted to start a freshwater aquarium, just a simple one mind you, plastic plants, and a few small fish. (it seems I have enough fire about my own aquarium as to pass it on to her) so I decided that I’d cycle this 3 gallon aquarium as a freshwater tank for her (which I just began doing today after using some "Prime") and I will end up using an old glass tank that is in storage in my parents’ attic somewhere.
I have to check up on the condtion of it, and it will probably require some deep cleaning, but it’s bigger, around 30-50 gallons I believe (been about 10 years since I’ve seen it) and it has a stand and everything, so I’m not sure whether I’ll be making this a dwarf seahorse tank anymore, though I may do so.. I guess I have yet more decisions to make. :pinch:
But yes this LFS is great, and someone there has seahorse experiance, because they have about 10 there of a couple different species. (breeds??) I picked up 2 books to start my reading when I’m not on the computer, they are "Seahorses: A Complete Pet Owner’s Manual" which seems to be written by a guy named Frank Indiviglio, and "The New Marine Aquarium: Step-by-step Setup and Stocking Guide" by Michael S. Paletta, both look great, and the second one has some great checklists of everything I need to start up my tank, so I guess I’ll read this over some, write down all my thoughts and plans, and repost here in a couple of weeks..
Thanks again for all the time assisting my, and you guys for sure have a seahorse lover for life here, and probably a dedicated buyer of your animals 😉
