Description: I bought a 10 gallon starter kit for $30 from walmart. I also purchased some decor and fake plants and a Tetra brand heater. I have a thermometer sticker on the outside, The lights are incandescant, but I reccommend upgrading to Zoo Med Ultra Sun. They make the tank look FABULOUS! The only reason I went back to incandescant is that Petco was out of ZooMed bulbs. I LOVE heavily planted tanks, but am new to plant keeping, so I am taking it slow.
Advice: Water changes, talk to experienced people, get to know your local aquarium shop's owner (they can help you), check out a library book or do online research (on reputable sites), don't buy fish on a whim (I know it's hard), give the tank time to establish itself. Meet the needs of your fish.
Fish Kept: In the 10 gallon, I have 7 Molly Fry, 1 Pleco (1.5 inches), and a Mystery Snail. In the 5.5 Gallon, I have 3 Mollies, 1 Bumblebee Goby and 1 mystery snail & an amazon sword.
Corals/Plants: I have to live plants: An Amazon Sword and an Anubis
Tank Size: 10 gallons
About Yourself: I am a nursing student with a very stressful schedule and academic load. It is nice to come home and watch my fish or zone out while maintaining them. I have only kept goldfish in the past (Black Moore and Calico Ryunkin). I am new to tropical tanks, but so far my fish are happy and healthy. I have two tanks and am getting another (my largest yet) in 2 days. It will be 30 gallons.
