Also I plan to do partial water changes to keep down nitrate levels but do want plants and moss that can lower the levels and want algae eaters instead of cleaning the algae (wanting a close to natural ecosystem) but still very much in the planning stages. I joined this forum hoping for help om my journey and to help others learn fro, my journey as well.
Welcome to AA!

I am still kind of new to the hobby, but word of advice: Start with a large tank! I currently have a 10 gallon tank, and I'm already itching to upgrade!

That's probably a good size. I'm thinking about setting up a 55 gallon goldfish tank myself. If I could only convince my parents ...
