Hi so I'm sorta new to the world of fish. I've had a 5 gallon tank for a few months with great success. Over the weekend I upgraded to a 36 gallon tank. Still testing my ability to take care of a tank this big so I'm sticking with Tetras and a Guppy. I'd love any tip and pointers and if anyone wants to add me feel free. Meeting people who know about fish is why I'm here. :D

Here is a picture of my tank, it's taken from my phone since I haven't set up my camera on my laptop yet.

I guess I'll list my fish while I'm here. I have 7 neon guppies, my wife named them after the 7 dwarfs. 2 X-ray Tetras named Alan and Elc. 2 Raphael Catfish named Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo. 1 Guppy named Milkshake. And a Pleco named Sharptooth. Oh and a Ghost Shrimp named Jacques.

Hello and welcome to the forum I love the fish names - quite creative.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
