New in Wisconsin

Hey, new to the forum. I'm also a member at www.aquariacentral.com, www.thepufferforum.com, and www.plecofanatics.com.

I started out with bettas and then moved to Figure 8 puffers. I now have 4 tanks at home (not including the 75g) and one at work.

At work I have a 2.5g betta tank.
At home I have a 75g tank in planning. Just waiting until I can add my fishes! I pretty much know what I want, but I'm waiting on a little more advice about my choices.

I have a 16g tank with two L387 plecs and dozens of malaysian trumpet snails. Everything from this tank will be added to the 75 gallon tank, except for gravel.

20g: Cherry shrimp, pond snails, and common ramshorns. This is my breeding tank for puffer food. But I also enjoy watching the snails and shrimp.

44g: Figure 8 puffer, 4 female mollies, and 8 bumblebee gobies. The mollies were all prego from the lfs, so I've also got a ton of tiny fry swimming about.

75g: Community in planning. This will be new territory for me, pretty much completely. It will be the first tank with a sand substrate. It will also be the first time I use a canister filter. And most of the fish are ones I've never kept before. I posted in the cichlid forum for advice about the cichlids I want to keep, kribs, angel, and Bolivian ram. Anyway, I'm really excited about it, and I can't wait!

New Auburn. It's about halfway between Rice Lake and Eau Claire.
