New Here

Hi, new here, name is Jay, 34, currently have a 14 gallon aqueon which I had previously set up and kinda fell by the wayside. I rinsed the substrate and all the accessories and the old filter cartridge and filled her back up on Tuesday got the heater set and started running the filter. Hopefully Monday Ill rescue a Betta from Petco and give him a nice new home. I was checking out a couple of stores today and I was so close to just buying one, but I wont get to my tank til Monday morning so Ill have to wait. Also, I plan to slowly plant this tank with natural plants as opposed to plastic and slowly add some compatable buddies for my new betta. No pics right now, but Monday I should have some of my new buddy and his home. Ive learned alot just reading around the boards the past couple of days and I must say some of you have some awesome looking fish and some terrific tank set ups.
