Getting A New Tank!!!

Hello everyone!!!

I am really excited because I am getting a brand new tank for christmas!!! I currently have a 10 gallon tank that I love but I will be getting a 36 gallon bow tank as a christmas gift. What would be some cool fish to get for it? I want to get a good mix of fish and different colors as well. Also I am looking for fish ideas at first and I will definitely want to get some more as time goes on. I currently have two angels but I got them for my 10 gallon tank (as of now) because the price was right and I have never seen any angels like them. They will be transferred over to the new tank once it is up and running in a few weeks.

Damn Ghost Shrimp!!

So I purchased about five ghost shirmp for my tank the other day. The only problem is that they always get stuck in my filter!!! How to I avoid this in the future if it is even possible

You can wrap the intake in foam. I understand that works for frogs (had this problem with a tank at work... just stopped trying to keep frogs)

They have specific sponges made to cover filters intake to save fry/shrimp/frogs etc.

Fluval Edge Pre-Filter Sponge - Filter Media - Fish - PetSmart

This is the one I use and recommend. Its a bit denser than the other sponges I've used so less can get trapped in it. My fish like picking at the bits it catches too

then how does it catch the stuff it is trying to filter?

Think of it as a "pre"-filter that just catches bigger stuff before the main filter does. It will need cleaning as well, and probably more often than the main I might guess.
