Smile Newbie Alert!

Morning people!
Just wanted to say hi to the community. I currently have one mature aquarium, only small, 8.6gallons, and I am currently starting my next project a much larger tank, 36gallons. My main reason for joining the community is really to be able to ask the people that really know what they are talking about when it comes to the subject of Aquarium keeping, in other words yourself's, for advice and guidance when I need it, and hopefully contribute to the community site myself.
Thank you for listening,


Fruityscone!

Morning dude,
Well I will being decorating the tank with a nice piece or two of Mopani Wood, plus I plan to use "spaghetti rock" to give the tank some depth of field.
Fish wise I currently need to transfer several large mollies plus, when they start to grow, several 'Dalmation' Molly babies. I would like to put Gouramis, Rainbow fish and Rams into the tank also, but am a little unsure as to their compatability with my Mollies.
Would welcome some advice on this question if you have any dude, also any suggestions you may have on 'cleaners' for the new tank!

I love corys Amd upside down cats and otos for cleaners. Trays what I use in my 29. For me its not morning....wrkn overnite.... What about some plants. Those fish should be ok. But ramis are fin nippers. Planting helps keep fish away from another and not fighting. I have been loving platies lately too.

Plants seem scary at first... But not neat as hard as you.may think and Sooo beautiful. Talk about wow factor... And the dw looks so awesome w java fern or another clinging plant growing on it. Even just a nice amazon sword by its self adds Sooo much to a tank.

Use to work nights meself dude, 20 years in total, know what it's like.
Plant wise will be adding Java Ferns, Amazonia Sword plus other taller plants like Radicans Swordplants and Stargrass. Foreground Giant Sagiitaria, this is what I'm thinking anyway.
I will post some photos as a.s.a.p for you see, will mainly be decorations at the moment though.
