Novice freshwater tropical fishkeeper looking to dive deeper
Hi! Iíve kept fish off and on from childhood onward, but itís only in the last couple years Iíve gotten serious about doing it well (after realizing how bad I was doing!)
I have one active 20-gallon tropical freshwater tank with an undersized mixed school of small tetras. Itís about as simple as tanks come, and I want to spruce it up before adding a couple more tetras to the school. Iím looking into adding some live low-light, low-maintenance plants to improve the tetra neighborhood, and possibly a few bottom-dwelling fish, shrimp, or little aquatic frogs.
My favorite fish, though, are bettas with their funky personalities and interactivity. Iím planning a 10-15 gallon tank to eventually house a betta and possibly some little invertebrates like cherry shrimp or snails. It will be my first aquascape, and Iím very excited to improve my aquarist skills with this new challenge. Iíll be asking lots of questions to help me!
In the not-near future, Iíd love to try pea puffers, but Iíll have my hands full with my tetras and my aquascape project for a while.
