Hello from Florida

I am starting back with fish after a long time. I have kept reptiles and amphibians mostly. I am realizing how much more delicate fish are I am starting out with a planted tank with Platies and cories. They are thriving! I also have a Chinese Water Dragon with White Cloud minnows living in the filtered water half of the tank. This hobby, I am beginning to realize is extremely addictive!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

A couple of pics

These are from my phone so they aren't the best quality. The fish are in a bow front acrylic 5 gallon. It is stocked to the max, but everyone seems fine. I just feed them less and do frequent water changes. The platies are preggers so I intend to save the good ones and use others as feeder fish for the dragon. I have a ten gallon that is empty that I plan on planting and stocking.
