Hi from Arizona
I'm finally stocking a 10 gallon tank. No local shop here, just a Petsmart. If it wasn't for the guides on this forum, I'd be in for a big disappointment! Thank you all!
I used to catch minnows and crayfish as a kid in North Carolina. I even had a goldfish in a tiny plastic treasure-chest tank (2 gallons? 3?). It lived for at least a year, before we moved away and left it with a neighbor. I loved that fish. I won it at one of those state fair games with the jars of fish and the ping-pong ball. Beginner's luck, I gather! We changed the water every week.
I look forward to spying on your tanks. Hopefully I can post some pictures before Christmas. Thanks!
