I currently have a 20 gallon aquarium with 7 lemon tetra and some italian val. It was a great tank to get started in the hobby, but I am ready to upgrade to a bigger tank. One that will allow me to have more than one species of fish and make a more interesting aquascape. I am going to collect everything for my new set up from now until about mid summer, then I will start setting it up. I wanted to run my checklist by you guys to make sure I am not making any mistakes.
Tank: 40 gallon breeder (36"x18"16")
