    New guy here!

    Hello all!

    Kevin here.....had a tank way back when cichlids, driftwood and some live plants that died a horrible death never knew what I was doing.

    Fast forward to now, I have a 11 year old daughter who wouldn't stop pestering me for a tank so we got one. It's a 28 gallon currently empty awaiting the electrician to put a new plug-in so we can put in the area that we've designated. I currently lost the battle for live plants and plastic will be going in that will be changed as time goes on LOL. We are thinking 1 angelfish and then some sort of schooling or community fish to go along with it. Or maybe we will be doing Guppies and go that route. I've been searching and searching for local pet shops and breeders because I just can't stomach buying some of the fish I have seen at Petco and PetSmart. It's nice to see there's a local interest group out there and I look forward to meeting some of you and maybe at some meetings!
    Obviously by the picture super new but trying to educate myself and do it as right as I can the first time! All advice is welcome!!
    I live in Santa Clarita California.

    Welcome to the group! Just sneak some java fern or anubias in there once you get it running, you'll win them over in no time lol.

    Welcome sir! I second the idea of adding some anubias and java fern. Make sure to attach it to rocks or driftwood, don't bury it in the substrate, and it'll grow well for you! And don't be afraid of going down the rabbit hole, plants become just as addicting as the fish.
