Hi Everyone, I'm new here as I am a beginner with my aquarium. I have a 6 gallon "plasma" tank that hangs on the wall. I know it may be viewed as an outcast aquarium but I do enjoy it despite its shortcomings. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here.

Welcome! There is no such thing as an outcast aquarium. If it holds water and fish it is an aquarium. Although I am sure before too long you will want a bigger tank...and then a bigger tank...and then a salt water tank...and then a small ocean lol. At least, that is how it went for me.

Ok, I didn't think of that. But I think that just because it is a hang on the wall aquarium doesn't necessarily make it an outcast tank.

Welcome.

SnailPowered, generally the tanks you can hang on the wall are very thin, which doesn't give the fish much room to swim. That's why they're "outcast" aquariums. They can work for small fish, but they're not ideal. Everyone has to start somewhere though.
