Just got a new 20 gal setup a few days ago. The focus this time around is live plants.
I use to have 35 gal community set and 55 gal african ciclid set but when I had a run a misfortune, 35 gal tank got the plague and wiped out all my fish, had to put a cat down, then within a week of that my dog ended up paralyzed in her rear legs and ultimately had to put her down too. Very bad year.
Made me just get rid of everything and wanted nothing to to do with any of it except for for my other dog and cat the were thankfully healthy.
After a couple years now I decided I missed my tank and decided to stay small for now a picked a 20 gal and focus on plants . The fish are up to the wife.
Here is how it looks so far
