New to the hobby, hello!


I'm new to fishkeeping. Story of how I got into it: a few years ago a friend was moving out of state and gave me their betta fish tank. It was a sort of trial by fire trying to understand how to keep this little guy alive. I searched so many forums and other websites and realized the 3 gallon tank was too small and went and bought a 10 gallon for this guy. I learned about the cycling process and how to keep them healthy. He luckily survived and lived a healthy 2 more years before succumbing to dropsy and passing away.

Anyways, I have recently restocked my 10 gallon tank with mollies this time. I wish I had more space for larger tanks, but I live in a pretty small apartment. But one day I want to have larger tanks for my fish friends!

I'm excited to be a part of the community!

There are 20 tall tanks which fit the same space as a 10, but of course twice the water volume.

Mollies can get 4ish inches!!!
