Well, my freind was throwing out his old fish tnak, and i decided to pick it up, and start a new hobby! I am totally new to all this, so bear with me guys. He also gave me a light, hood, pump,and gravel ad a few rocks. What else do I need to get started? I am located in the bay area, fremont to be exact. Thanks for all the help I hope to receive!

By the way, the tanks top is kind of weird, so It might affect what Filter and heater I should get, to be more descriptive, heres a pic!





And I am not exactly sure on how big the tank is, since my freind got it as a gift. ere is a sticker,to help you gurus out, this is on the hood.

Hey, thanks for the welcome... Yeah, I figured I could mabe stock three babies in there, and by June I'd be able to buy a new tank. And if I have insufficent funds for that, I'll just sell them. What do you guys think? I still need help on the filter and heater selections..

First.. how big will the RBs be that your putting in your 15 gal? If they're frys, I hope you do follow through with your idea on a 55 gal by June!! Because even in their baby stages, they can be mean 'lil suckers!!

2nd, Yes they are illegal in Cali.

For such a small tank, you can cycle it for 24 hrs. 2 days most.
The Ps will be fry.
So how exactly Do i cycle my ~15-20 gallon tank? Should I go out and buy a few gold fish?
