Newbie to Fresh water aquarium
Hello everyone, newbie here to Fresh water Aquariums. Many years ago I used to own two 90 gallon Salt water Aquariums, no longer have those. Now im starting fresh with a small 10 gallon freshwater tank. Its been so many years, (back in the 80's) funny how you forget some things.
So far I have three Harlequin Rasboros and one Honey Gourami. Plan on getting two guppies once tank is totally ready, and that will be it. then I would like to get an larger aquarium. Would like to put it under my long glass coffee table, but there are some variables I need to figure out before I do this. I have two cats and they love to watch the fish I have now. So far have not broken into the tank :)
I hope to learn a lot about freshwater fish and care. I have never been on an aquarium forum. Though am very active on cat forums. Feline nutritionist so if you have any questions about feline nutrition, and health you can always PM me. ;)
