Very nice.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Looks like you're off to a good start.Be warned though,its addictive,so it won't be long until you want another tank,then another...
as for the max number of fish in a 40g it depends on what kind of fish and filtration.Throw the inch per gallon rule out.Do some research on the fish you like,you can use the Fish Profile section at the top or any number of places online.Aqadviser is site that will give you a general idea of what is compatible and numbers that will be ok for your tank.

Your's truly,
