Hi all!

I'm a newbie w/ having fish as pets... I've had a 5 gallon hex tank that I've
somehow managed to maintain pretty well for the past year. My fish seem to be very healthy and cohabitate well together. I have 2
Gourami fish and bushy nose pleco. My goal is to upgrade to a 37 gallon tank for Xmas! I'd like to transfer my existing fish to my new tank and add some schooling fish and a variety of angel fish.

Welcome! Do you have any pictures of your current tank?

Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)

Welcome to the site and congrats on upgrading!

The sooner you can get those fish in a bigger aquarium, the better off they will be. Check out the articles section for some good information on cycling and starting a new tank in general.
