13 year old new to fish!

I'm 13, male and I'm new to fish. I hope to learn a lot and start a successful aquarium and become an aquarist. I enjoy baseball (preferably Jay Bruce), pets, and video games. I currently own a 1 gallon with a healthy platy named Gunther. I had 2 goldfish, Biff (my little brother's) and Olaf. I also had 2 other platy, Shortfry (Also my little brother's), and my older brother's which had no name.
I'm hoping to soon get a 5 gal with 2 guppies, 1 platy, 1 molly, and an algae eater. That's all. Bye!

Wow

In two years that much of an upgrade? I think it'd be amazing, but we only have room for a 5 or MAYBE 10 at the max. Most likely getting a 5.
Oh I forgot, platy are my favorites.

I was about 10 when I started and now I am 15 and is currently doing reef aquariums with my 30 gallon and soon I will get a 90. Trust me when fish die it is horrible especially when it's from your parents money and they think you don't know what your doing. Saltwater are kinda hard especially for someone my age with little too no money and my parents think its just salt and water but don't get discouraged things happen that are out of your reach but you just have to go with it.

Yeah, I worked hard haha. I actually just upgraded my 25 fresh to the 45 so instead of having a empty 25, I decided to start a new experience and try salty. I have a mickey mouse platy in the 45 along with a ton of tetras and a baby angel fish. And a 5 gal is a great tank, especially for platys. Pea puffers too.

Yeah true especially when I go to my local saltwater fish store and I pick up a saltwater fish, coral or invertebrate sometimes they stop me to say " you know that's for saltwater only right" and say "yeah I know". One guy there has gotten to know me and he is a marine biologist so when all the good stuff comes he tends to inform me about early. Otherwise no one does any thing remotely fish wise around me especially around my age
