I just wanted to make a hello post and introduce myself. I've been lurking around here for a few days reading about other people's tanks trying to decide which one to get myself.
I've kept fish before (but not very well) but wanted to try again with a lot more knowledge and understanding. I felt a smaller tank was the way to go but hadn't decided on the type of fish. But after reading so many of your stories and seeing so many beautiful bettas, I've been inspired to raise one of my own.
I have on order an Eclipse Hex 5, a master test kit, heater, conditioner and so on. I can't wait to get it set up and do a fish-less cycle for the first time ever.
I already have many questions but thought it best to say hello first and mention how much I enjoy seeing all your pictures and reading your stories :)
