hello from vegas
After having freshwater tanks as a kid growing up, I have come back to the hobby after a 20+ year absence. It happened because my wife showed up at home with a 1 gallon tank and 2 goldfish. After doing a little research, I found that 1 gallon wasn't going to be enough... so I brought home the 14 gallon tank.
A few months ago I decided to get a little deeper so I brought home a 10 gallon tank. I just added a few more fish this weekend to bring the totals to 5 zebra danio and 6 neons. But I think that's gonna be it for this tank.
What really make me happy is watching my 2.5 year old son running from tank to tank saying "Hi Fish". Especially the betta that I put in the 1 gallon tank that is in his "play area" that he calls his "blue fish"
Anyways that's a brief history and now for why I joined this forum....
all of the tanks I described have plastic plants and I really want to learn how to keep live plants with the fish. I know that it is something that requires time and patience to learn the do's and don'ts.
Basically I want to use my empty 5 gallon tank as my first live plant tank. Is this possible and where do I start.
