Latest addition to the community tank
I am completely new to this hobbie. I bought a 40 gallon tank and I am in the process of setting it up. Las week was getting the filter and heater ready, washing gravel, placing some decorations, filling it up and getting the water ready. I understand it will take a couple of weeks to get it ready. Yes, I already bought a test kit and started checking the water. I even bought an app to keep the test log in my iPhone
The obvious and more important stuff comes next: what fish should I get to start it. The guy at my local aquarium recommended to start with 2 or 3 Platies. Any thoughts or recommendations? What other fish would you recommend? How many fish should I keep in this size aquarium. All your comments would be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to becoming an active member in this forum
