    Hey there! My name is Sky and let me just tell you I am so glad I found this site! So on with my introduction!
    I am thirteen, an artist and have a love for any and all animals, especially aquatic and marine ;) I'm also really random and always up for trying new things. I am actually a part of the mermaid community, so basically I just make and swim around in mermaid tails that I make and bring smiles to kids' faces all while looking awesome. Yeah, random.

    I am obviously a huge aquarium lover so here is a bit about my tanks!

    My best tank is a forty gallon freshwater aquarium. All of the plants in my tank are living and have really pretty neutral colored smooth stones for the bottom plus a resin 'log' and a reddish colored rock thingy :P Living in here are two finskirt tetras, three gouramis, four platys, a school of five neon tetras, two female betta fish, two mystery snails and an eight inch common pleco.
    (I also just bought a new and better filter so all my fish are very happy with me! )

    I also keep three male bettas in seperate 1 gallon tanks. (I really want them to have at least 2 gallon tanks each, but I have no room and the parents wont let me :P )

    In a 2.5 gallon tank I grow elodea to be put into my forty gallon when/if needed.

    I hope to one day have a self-sustaining saltwater aquarium with all different types of corals, anemones and fish. Like a little chunk of the ocean right there in my living room! :D


    So there is a bit about me and my tanks. I hope that I can get a lot of good tips from you all and can be an even better aquarist. Catch you later!

    Welcome to the forum.
    I hope you did transfer some of the old filter media into your new filter. That's where the bacteria live that are responsible for water quality. You also might want to review the compatibility of certain species in your tank. Gouramis will mature into territorial fish and as a general rule should be kept alone.

    Good luck!

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I did transfer the filter media :)
    And I had bought my gouramis when I was younger and really didn't know much about proper aquarium compatibility, but they are all full grown now and I have never had an issue with any of them. I guess I was just lucky? But yeah, now I always look into compatibility first ;) Thanks!
