I have a twenty gallon and a five and a half gallon. Both are heavily planted tanks with a bunch of filtration. The tanks are heavily stocked with small freshwater fish and inverts.
Get the biggest tank you can, test water parameters and change water. If you get more fish, get more plants and filtration.

There is nothing more beautiful than a thriving saltwater tank, but these tanks can be expensive to set up and maintain.
Starting a new tank can be time-consuming, especially if you have to choose all of your own equipment.
Also known as oto cats, otocinclus catfish are some of the smallest aquarium fish out there and also some of the best algae eaters.
