Hi, I'm brand new to fish keeping. A couple of months ago my husband and I got a 20g tank. He kept tropical freshwater fish as a kid but I have never done anything like this. Here is some info about our tank:

60 gallon tropical freshwater tank (4'X2'X1')
Substrate: light colored sand
Planted with moss ball, scarlet temple, anachris, onion plant and corkscrew
2 2" clown loach (yes, we will get a larger tank before they need it)
4 black skirt tetras (we are planning to increase to 6)
5 raspora hets
7 zebra long fin danios
0 neon tetras (but yesterday we had 5)

I'm having lots of fun learning about fish!

Thanks for the welcome! Stephanie, sorry that was confusing. We bought a 20g and then about a month later we got a 60g. Currently the fish live in the 60g and my husband is trying to hatch some triops in the 20g. We just bought a 10g for a quarantine tank but it isn't cycled yet.

Welcome to TFK!

Here's a song about triops for you:
