Smile I'm not exactly new to fish keeping, but I know there's a lot I can still learn.

Hello! My name is Valerie and I'd probably consider myself on the high end of novices when it comes to fish keeping. I've almost always had a small tank or two. I've kept bettas, zebra danios, tetras, rasboras and guppies. You know, easy stuff.
I'm very exited about the tank my husband bought for me from a friend of his. It's seventy five gallons! That's far bigger than anything I've had before. It's a late anniversary gift. We've been married seven years.
We do have two tanks set up in the house now. They're both ten gallons. The one in my daughter's room has a few guppies. She's only three so even though we call it her tank, it's really my husband's. He has another ten gallon tank in our living room inhabited by a male betta and a small school of harlequin rasboras.

I'm having a hard time deciding. I've never been able to keep big fish before, so maybe cichlids. On the other hand, I've always loved my tiny fish and I think I'd be cool to have large schools of two or three different kinds. It's so hard to choose.
