It's great you came here first! It's better just to come here, they don't normally really know much.

I think it's awesome tht you understand and are willing to learn about the cycle and go through it. Too many people go out and trust the pet store employees thinking the cycle really isn't necessary.

It's up to you. A 5 gallon can get a little boring imo, but it can be a lot easier to clean and keep up with too.

What kind of fish do you want? I'm actually looking for a tank more of your size to downgrade to, because I love bettas and would like to focus on just one fish. If you're looking to have a full tank with lots of fish you may want to consider an upgrade. You should be excited about whatever tank you decide on, but I think little tanks are fun

I really enjoy my 40 breeder and my 29 but I also like my 10 gallon..it's very easy to maintain. And raising guppies is fun too. :P
