Description: I have several tanks. One 29g planted community tank. One 20g shrimp and corydora planted breeder tank. One 55g planted goldfish tank. Two 10g divided planted betta tanks. And one 40g summer tub.
Advice: Start with cycled media and filter already. Saves so much headache with fish stress and algae. Join a local aquarium club, if one's available. Get plants from that group, if possible. Floating plants are usually very easy. Plants reduce the required water change frequency/amount, and stabilize your tank. Definitely a good idea and good for babies too, if you're into breeding.
