New Nursing Student Fish Enthusiast

Just wanted to say hello to everyone and I have always been fascinated with all walks of biologic creatures. Due to my living arrangements and busy schedule I figured aquatic life will be a great pet addition. Its been a week since i started two small/beginner aquariums. I have a 10 gal tank with 3 Barbs (2 tigers and 1 red glass) and a 5 gal with 2 small guppies and 1 gourami. Everyone has been doing well and so for so good (fingers crossed) Any special considerations or comments?? Thanks !!!

Welcome to AA I agree with HN1, as you'll find out, the barbs and gourami both need bigger tanks, like 30g or so.

Just uploaded my fish album for all, and I would get a bigger tank if I could handle/afford it but again I'm kinda on a tight budget/living arrangement.

Been there, done that. lol

You don't need a bigger tank necessarily. Just look at the fish that do well in the tank size you have.
