Just getting started

Hey everyone,

Just getting into the hobby. Still in the research stage. Planning to start with a 10-20 gallon planted freshwater tank with a cleanup crew. Hopefully adding some fish after a few months.

Hope to learn a lot from you all.

Welcome! I'd definitely go for the 20. Easy enough to do water changes and big enough that your water chemistry won't swing a bunch.

Thanks @JoeMan. Yea, I'm leaning towards the 20. It's a good point. I've been reading 20-30 gal is a good size for beginners.
