Hola everyone,

I've always loved animals and before moving to Dallas I had cats, dogs, birds, snakes, lizards, and of course fish. Now that I live in an apt I've decided to just go with fish. Been an aquarium hobbiest since I recieved a fish bowl with two gold fish for my sixth birthday and I just took off from there. Having said that I still consider myself a novice and thats why I decided to join the AA community. I currently have a 55 gallon fresh water community corner aquarium with two large bala sharks, four pictus catfish, five red eye tetras, and sadly fake plants. Haven't added any more fish b/c my bala sharks are very active requiring a lot of room to swim. They are LARGE and IN CHARGE.
I recently purchased a 100 gallon and I'm working on setting it up with live plants. I'm really looking foward to getting some advice from everyone so i can get this 100 gallon up and going.

welcome ^^ if you are getting a 100 gallon i would suggest adding a sump tank so you can add plants that won't be bothered by your fishies :P it is a great place to store extra bio-media so you won't kill your bacteria population when you do a clean -.^

Thanks for welcome,
I was looking into using a sump tank at first but I have no previous expierience with them and they seem to get a little complicated with the plumbing and a little pricey.

Welcome to the site!
I suggest you use the search feature on this site and research balas a bit. They have special needs in terms of space and tankmates.
Congrats on your new tank!
