My Second Tank :)

Hey all,

After having my first 6g tank up for some time now, I love it! I enjoy watching my betta, frog, and snail doing their thing, and taking care of them is a lot easier than I thought!

I think I'm ready to set up a second a tank, so I can have more stocking options! I think my next tank will be a 20g long, or a 25g, depending on which will fit on my new stand. So, I want to ask for some advice!

Filter suggestions? I was thinking a sponge filter this time. Work with live plants?
Any type of hood that is better than others?
I want live plants (anacharis, anubias, moss) so light suggestions?

I'm really clueless on the subtleties of this hobby. There so much equipment out there I'm not sure what to do!

Once again, Thanks to everyone!!!

I like sponge filters. I think that would be fine for your tank.
