Smile New f/WI

Hello!
I've had tiny tanks off and on most of my life (ones that I didn't take care of). And started doing bettas about 5 years ago.
June 08 I started my first 10g with 4 bloodfin tetras and a cory catfish. After the cycle I added a dwarf pleco and 3 columbia tetras. All was well until the bloodfins started getting sick in October and dropped off one by one. After many water changes and testing I got things back to normal. My current stock is 6 Columbias and a cory cat.
I will be adding a tank for 3 mollies in a couple weeks, I still have one blue Betta in his own tank, and my ultimate goal is to have TONS of neon tetras (and actually have them live)

hello and welcome.
i hope you enjoy being with us,and if you are able perhaps,
share some pictures of your fish too. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
