New to the hobby

Hello all,

I have already posted a couple times on the forums, but I am new to the hobby and have jumped in feet first. I have been reading on here for a couple weeks now but never registered. I started back in without any research with a 5 gallon tank and a 10 gallon shortly thereafter about November of last year. I was soon over my head and my whole stock in the 10 gallon was destroyed by ick twice. My only left over is an albino frog which the LFS told me was immune to ick. I got a 29 gallon a little over a week ago and decided that it just wasnt enough and to my wife's chagrin I bought a 55 gallon two days ago. It is up and running with all the ornaments and fake stuff from the old tanks that were still going and all the fish are do good. The wife tells me that with the 55 gallon, I cannot have another tank due to my limited space. I am going to have to sell the 10 but will keep the 29 for later. Nice to meet you all and look forward to chatting in the future.

20 Gallon Planted Guppy tank. Amazon Sword, Dwarf Hairgrass, Cardinalis.
55 Gallon -1 BN Pleco, 1 High Fin Syndontis, 1 Oto, ~18 Kenyi Cichlids
