I've just had the sudden urge to get a fish tank.  Strange how these things come and grab you like that (last one was a watch).  I know we have some fish tank experts on here so I'm looking for a little advice and LINKS!  I'm not going for anything big here.  Today at the pet store I found one of those "fish tank set" deals where you (seem to) get pretty much everything you need to get started.  The only problem is that I have no idea what to do and everything is in Japanese so that isn't going to be much help. 

What I've got my eye on right now is just a small tank.  It's 22L and comes with (I believe) a filter, light, etc for about $100 US.  I'm just looking for something simple and easy to maintain.  I'll be sticking with freshwater fish and nothing too expensive (fish wise).  What I want are some interesting fish (a little more varied than your common goldfish) and I'd like to get variety-so what kind of fish go well together etc.

If you guys could impart whatever knowledge you know about how to get a fish tank started (you gotta let it cycle for a couple days right?) then I would really appreciate it!  And if you know any good fish tank sites for complete noobs then I would really like to see them! Thanks!

It's gotta be something in the air, several guys here at work suddenly decided to get into the fish game.  I had a tank when I was a kid but when I lost the bulk of them during a house move (damned ick) I've never gotten the itch to do it again.

Well I got my tank all set up yesterday.  Let me tell you, putting together a filter when you've never done such a thing before and with Japanese instructions is not easy!  I just bought two zebra danios this morning to get it cycling.  Eventually I will get more fish and plants.  I will update this thread again when I add more to the tank.

won't the sound of the running water make you want to pee though?
