2 Attachment(s)
Havent showed everyone my tank yet... just getting started so its nothing to special... really loving this hobby :-) The fish are relaxing and awesome to watch and care for!! Cant wait to have some little baby fry. I have mollies, guppys, black skirt tetra, black neons, platys, and rasboras... sounds like alot but only a couple of both, i got four of the neons tho.. and bout four of the tetras. :| Thanks!! Hope to learn much more on this site.. its already helped alot! Also what is the max amount of fish for a 40 gl?

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.

Nice tank better then when I started out with my small 10 gallon. I love the guppies never could keep them myself for some reason.
