Red face Started out as just a 10 gal, became a 55 gal.

Hi All,

While I am not new to fish, I am new to having my own 55 gallon tank. I convinced my husband to let me get a 10 gallon..then a friend said "take my 55 gall" Right now I have my vein tail betta, 5 red platys, 5 guppies, a red tail shark, a algae eater and some ghost shrimp. I do not have much of decorations in my tank.. yet. I am hoping to add more and make it fun to look at and watch. My parents had a 55 gallon tank when I was smaller but it was boring and not much to see. I joined the community in hopes of getting help and seeing what other ideas there might be for a freshwater tank.

Hello. I am also new. Id love to see a picture of your tank. And are you planning on using the plastic plants? I know absolutely nothing about real live plants. But what i like to see in a tank is bubbles and bright colors.

I was debating between live or plastic, I might go with live. I am hopefully getting around to making a bubble wall in the back. I agree. Bright colors are very beautiful in a tank.

Oh wow your tank is already very pretty. Defiantly all you need is some plants. Just a splash of green color.

Wow! Your tank is awesome! I think you should go with live plants, they help water quality so much and your tank should easily be able to support them if you have flourescent lighting
