well im not planning to keep chiclids or discus. im not interested anymore in breeding the fish in the 36 gallon only in my room im breeding my bettas. thats all im focused on right now. trust me i did research fish before i take them home. except for the first couple cause i didnt know i was gonna be this interested in fish lol. but now since i actually spawned my bettas im intersted in them. and im researching platies because im getting them at around christmas time cause im getting a tank. there really isnt that much to platies or guppies they r livebearers. live for 3 years...... yea i know all the basics. i appreciate u telling me this tho thank you.
