20+ years since my last aquarium

Hello! I've had several freshwater 10 to 20-gallon aquariums, but it has been about 20 years since the last one. I don't have spousal agreement on making space for something like a 29-gallon on a stand, so I've decided to go with a betta fish in a standard 5-gallon on my nightstand. I already have several questions, and I'm looking forward to hearing about your aquariums.

Welcome to the forum! Glad to have you here!

In aquariums, bigger tanks are always better. And since 20 years ago, there's been a lot more technology and products developed so be sure to look at some new stuff!

My tanks (so far )
5.5 gallon Planted Dwarf Puffer tank (2 Dwarf Puffers and a lot of RCS!)
16 Gallon Planted
(GBR pair, 3 amano shrimp and a whole bunch of snails!)

Welcome to AA!
Oddly enough, the older I get, the bigger the house, yet the smaller and fewer the tanks. And I understand the spousal thing.
There are quite a few folks that run nano tanks. You just need to keep an eye on them as they are more prone to fluctuations in water quality and temperature.
