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.

In stressful times, having a home aquarium could be a benefit.
If you want a thriving, brightly colored aquarium then consider picking your freshwater fish by color.
The type of filtration system you choose for your saltwater aquarium is incredibly important.
