I have to first start this off with saying I'm not a complete newbie to the world of Aquariums, but I'm pretty close.
I haven't had an aquarium since I was in my pre-teens, and now I've decided to jump back in. I got myself a 10gal kit, got it set up, cycled, and now I've thrown in some plants and fish.
Currently I've got 2x El Nino Fern, which may or may not make it from what I've read after buying them.
There's also a narrow leaf Java fern, and what I was told was Wisteria, although it looks nothing like what I'm used to seeing.
The fish that roam the tank consist of two very small, and very active Emerald Cory's, and five White Cloud Minnows that seem to be entirely too energetic for a 10gal tank.
In my past, I've had a 55gal freshwater setup with angels, shovelnose catfish, turtles, tetras, barbs, gouramis. You name it, it's been in that tank. Unfortunately the shovelnose got big enough to eat everything, and that's when my love of aquariums ended as a young boy.
Ideally, I'd like to keep the 10g going, get back into the swing of things, and get myself another 55g tank for a big community tank, and maybe a smaller cichlid tank. I've also been tossing the idea around for a nano reef tank, but a past experience with saltwater has really made me wary of anything salt related.
I would post pictures of the tank, but right now I'm having an issue with a haze that developed overnight. It's cloudy, and testing the water shows everything normal. I'm hoping it's just something minor but I've got my eye on it for the moment.
