Hey There, Josh from Australia here.
First of all, the advice ive already found on this site was very informative.
The first fish tank i had was an Xmas gift when i was about 5 - now 23 -, it was 2ft long, and only golfish but back then i loved it and have loved fish and aquariums since. But I never had one of my own until 6 months ago. Its 4ft long 210L(55gal) and is set up for tropical fish. I also have a smaller tank for breeding. Since then ive gotten:
1 Black Ghost Knife.....My girlfriends fish, that one
3 Bloodfin Tetras
5 Clown loaches.....Love those little guys
5 Serpae Tetras
6 Tiger Barbs....successfully bred and ATM raising the fry, about a month into it
6 Scissortails and
9 Neon Tetras.
Synthetic plants, though i plan on going planted very soon.
I also plan to Get another tank later on and try a marine setup.
