Another newbie here

I briefly posted for a couple days as "Jeff in Chicago," but then decided that was too generic (not that this is much better, but oh well).

I grew up with a few different 10 gallon aquariums over the years - breeding (by luck) swordtails as a pre-teen, and then a variety tank in college...but I'm finally ready to expand my knowledge past the basic and really get into the hobby side of owning an aquarium.

I intend to set up a 30 gallon (subject to be larger by the time i actually get it) planted aquarium this summer, built around a pair of German Blue Rams (fish I've owned before and love).

I'm sure I'll be asking lots of questions and learning as much as I can from the community here - so thanks to everyone in advance

Consider me a sponge for your collective knowledge. It's great to be aboard!

Planning a 55 gallon planted tank, due sometime in July...
Draft Stocking Plan (Subject to change at any moment, all advice welcome!):

3 Boesemani Rainbows
9 Rummynose Tetras
4 German Blue Rams
1 Siamese Algae Eater (or 2 American Flagfish)
3 YoYo Loaches (or Zebra or Burmese Border)
1 Bristlenose Pleco (or Rubbernose)

The Maybes:
1 Leopard Frog Pleco (L-134) (if I can find it)
