Evening everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself. On terminal leave from the Army and just moved into my new place in the Houston area.

My wife and I just celebrated our 2 year anniversary and she picked me up a 30gal freshwater tank.

Started with 5 blood fin tetras and one passed in the first week. The other 4 are almost right at a month in the tank and they are doing great. (Bright red tails and clear bodies) Today I added 3 Baby Blue Dwarf Gouramis and 1 Hiffin Spotted Pleco. No live plants yet....and you have to excuse the Colosseum lol.

Oh and the dog enjoys watching the tank.:-P

:| I'll start looking for something more "natural" to put into the tank instead of the huge colloseum lol....

Welcome :)

I like the colliseum, more importantly I think your tetras would love it as well. I'm not famliar with that species of pleco, do you know how big they get? I'm wondering because many Plecos get well over a 1' long which is far too big for a 30g, although I know there are a few species that only get 6" or less which would be fine.

18" is their max size, but by the time he reaches that he'll be in a new home at my dads in a 75gal tank. Unless I go big myself.....

I was tossing around the idea of keeping it and just adding some more plants.
