newbie

never had fish before but my wife has. she had oscars. i got the aquarium for free and recently gave up a dog. fish just made sense. i currently have a 55 gallon with a jack dempsy, a green terror, a tiger oscar and a couple of convicts. my goal is to own an aggressive freshwater tank. i know i need a larger tank. maybe i can get another free aquarium.

Welcome to AA!! We are glad to have you!

Nice looking tank!
You are definitely going to want to look into getting a larger tank or another tank ASAP. Housing a GT and a JD in a 55 will probably lead to aggression. They can coexist but they need their space.

thanks guys for the welcome. i do plan to get a bigger tank and my dempsey loves to bully my gt. but my tiger oscar keeps them in line pretty good. i also plan on creating a planter next to the tank to act as an auto water change. i'll post some pics when i can
