hi, So while the C&CF guys talk about cooling their rigs with fish tanks all the time, my searches for a thread about starting my own small freshwater tank have been fruitless. "Can't find a thread? Start one!!" Right? So here goes:I've read a lot of the material on About.com Freshwater Aquariums and a couple other places, but I am loath to believe all I read on the 'net. So, with that in mind, for all those who have done this before, what should I know? My wife wants to get the kids fish for Christmas and I want to do it right. We've been through the "betta in a bowl" scenario with nieces/nephews, but I'd like to get something a little more elaborate. From what I have read it seems I ought to start with a 20 gallon or so tank purchased in a kit with the hood/light/filter/sundries. Smaller tanks seem to be frowned upon because of start up troubles involving water chemistry, filter bacteria growth time, etc. This undertaking seems expensive enough that I would really hate to get it wrong from the get-go. I don't want to be one of those people who puts a tank on their front lawn with a sign saying "please take me!" after experiencing epidemics among my water dwelling friends.So what do you experienced fishy people recommend as far as hardware (tank, etc.) and software (fishies) for a complete n00b who is enthusiastic yet clueless? Please help. I did not find the right solution from the internet. References: https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=333564 Motion graphics animation studio Thanks!
