Hi there

Hey everyone, we're just starting out in the aquarium hobby. Our tanks are listed in the profile and we'll get some pictures up as soon as I can get decent shots. Any suggestions would be helpful!

We started out a year ago with a 1gal betta tank for our daughter, and got a 20gal long aquarium about a month and a half ago. After a few weeks, we upgraded to our 65gal, and upgraded Mr. B to a 10gal aquarium.

We're happy with our set ups for now, but plan on going bigger (125+) when we buy a house hopefully in a year. We've been looking into the corner flow aquarium, and are also interested in planting our next tank, so would like as much information as possible on that. We were looking into a moss ball for our current aquarium, but were told by our LFS that it would require a Co2 system and the proper lighting (we currently have the standard light bar that came with our hood) or it would die in 3 months, but what we had read online was that moss would be fine without those things. If anyone can point towards threads that are more accurate/helpful information on these subjects, we'd greatly appreciate it.

I'm also curious if there are any smaller schooling fish that we could put in with Mr. B in our daughter's room, or if it's better off just leaving him as he is. He's been alone for about a year already. TIA for any/all advice!
