    Talking Please help a newbie!!!

    Hello everyone,

    Well firstly I would like to say that I am an Indiana native interested in a aquarium setup. I have been reading for a few days now several hours a day about everything that needs done, options on equipment--from self cleaning to completely home made, ph, salinity and everything else.

    When I was about 14 I managed to become the 4H champion in aqualogy and raised my fish from babies, my plants, my wonderful eel Bob and everything else. It was a very thriving community that I loved, L O V E D. Then a genocidal maniac (my cousin) was supposed to watch it for one weekend... I gave very specific instructions that were to be followed. She started the first night and decided that why feed them 3 times a day when you can do a whole box on the first night and let them eat at their own pace. Needless to say when I got back my filter system was burned up. The water was a sludge and all my babies (plants animals and even Bob) was dead. I cried and cried.. For a few years I couldn't even look at an aquarium without getting all emotional.

    Now Im 28 and would like to do this again. I was looking at some wonderful Nano-cube setups and my heart melted, but I don't know what to do or where to start. I would love to pay for lunch, or a phone call or even blog posts here for someone/some people to assist me and give advice. I live a very active life I work all the time as a Genius for Apple, on my off time I am involved in politics a little bit, and a few other things. So I need something I can take care of without it being crazy hard, and that's why the nano setups with coral and skimmer etc were looking great.

    PLEASE HELP BE MY HERO GUYS,
    Matthew D. Miller
