You may not know this...
...But I'm new to the forums. And I just thought I'd say hello. Been reading on here for awhile now and figured I should actually get involved with the conversation.
I have a tall and odd size 43 gallon tank that is my current baby. I'm calling it my "tetra tank" though there are a small handful Cory Cats in there too. I can't help it, I love my Corys. It's mainly neons and red minor tetras though.
My wife keeps a small 10 gallon tank with Fancy Tail Guppies.
My upcoming project will be to have a 100% real-plant(instead of my usual mix of fake and real), planted aquarium that will be my "barb" tank. I'm scoping out a 30 gallon for it at the moment and can't wait to pepper all of you with questions.
Look forward to chatting with you all in the future!

Welcome to the AC CowPuppet.
A tank dedicated to tetras with a school of Corys is awesome.
Barbs are not my favourite but hey their fish too.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

You may need to be selective in your barb and/or plant selection. Some barbs are noted plant eaters!

Hello and welcome.When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
