    Hi everyone, I'm a complete noob & I've never kept fish. After knocking the wall out between the kitchen & living room a couple of yrs ago i decided back in march it might be a great idea to put the wall back up & build a fish tank into it. Only in the process to discover aquascaping! And here i sit writing this message to you guys.
    What have i been missing for the last 48yrs :)

    Hi and welcome to the forum :D

    Take your time lots to read and ask OFC. Big tanks are hard and soon get very expensive esp if going High tech with CO2, plus take quite a bit a regular weekly maintenance.

    Good idea to start a journal with your initial thoughts/ideas before buying equipment.

    Hope you enjoy the hobby
