Awkward Intro Time

Howdy all,
I'm new to the aquarium but have always had an interest in it. My past experience in it is mainly my dad's 30 gallon gold fish tank, mainly watching him care for it and not taking an active role in it...but past that I don't have much experience. I'm sure all have a myriad of questions that will no doubt raise a difference of opinion or two.

Welcome do you have tanks of your own? If so what sizes?

Currently I have a 10 gallon that I'm cycling to make a small livebearer tank with my daughter.

I was going to say if it's mollies, when they reproduce that tank is a little small. 30g would be better. For now I'd say it is fine though.

I like guppies they are very pretty fish, but they also can turn into a breeding disaster because they breed much quicker than many other fish, before you know it you could have 10 more

Well...crud. As much as it may excite my little one to see frys, for me that drastically increases the work load. Oh well...no use worrying about what may never come to be.

If you don't want them to breed though just get all the same sex 👍
