Newly obsessed!
« on: July 01, 2013, 02:05:44 PM »

Hi everyone! I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself and my new little friends. My name is Kelly and I'm from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Approximately 6 weeks ago, my husband purchased a wee little fish tank starter kit (1.7 gallons...yikes!), with the idea of getting our 2 1/2 year old son a goldfish or two. We then purchased a black moor and a ryukin (I think). I start researching on the internet to find out how to take care of them, and quickly found out that the tank was too small for even my pinky toe.

We then bought a used 46 gallon bow front with stand from a co-worker. It was in sad shape and I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, and I couldn't get the dang thing clean. So I bought a brand new 46 gallon bow front. That's much better! My ryukin didn't make it to the new tank however. RIP Marcy!

So I've had the big tank up and running for 9 days now, hundreds of dollars have been spent on furnishings, and equipment. I'm officially obsessed! We have 4 goldfish in there and I have been doing a water change every other day and testing the water. No problems yet, so hopefully we'll all make it through this initial cycling!

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, so please be kind to me! Remember, I'm new to all this!

Now, I'd like you to meet Oliver (black moor), Winnie (oranda), Dakota (calico ryukin) and Pearl (I'm not sure what kind she is). They all squished together so I could take a group picture. Little smarties!

I don't even get a hello from anyone? Friendly bunch we have here. I guess I won't bother sharing any more information with you all, just to be ignored.

Hello! This forum isn't the most active, there are a few of us here, we float around from time to time Wink The reason no one posted, is more than likely because no one had been around to see your post for the day that you gave us to respond Wink
