New guy here

Hello all! Thanks for letting me join and im eager to learn and relearn freshwater aquariums...
Now, i say relearn cause 3 years ago i had a 85 gal freshwater tank w/ a variety of fish and a 25 gal freshwater tank w/ a red ear slider that i loved but sold when i joined the US Army.
I have been Active Duty for a lil over 3 years. I am stationed at Fort Hood in Texas.. I joined as a 19k( M1 abrams tank crewmember), but i reclassed to 19D(Cavalry scout) while i was in Iraq. ( 08/10-08/11)...Hence the 19 at the end of my name...
I'm not looking for any sympathy but im getting back into aquariums to deal with my PTSD from being blown up by an ied in babil province, iraq...it really relaxes me...
I just recently found a free 35 gal hexagon tank and also bought a ready to go used 29 gal tank also from craigslist...i only have the 29 gal set up right now, but it is currently lifeless..

I would love a salt water tank but to me they are more time consuming and the ol army pretty much consumes most of my time...i'm not real sure which direction i wanna go...i love unique fish...my last tank had bala sharks, catfish, a eel, tetras and albino frogs....
I recently saw a blue crayfish i would love to have and some more sharks...but idk....
Im not looking for high maintance, but i want more of a challenge and look then goldfish lol...
