I have been looking for a good freshwater forum, and it seems like I found it! I have had multiple tanks and have worked my way up from a 10 gallon to my current 55 gallon tank. My current tank has gone through a little bump and so it is missing its mid-level fish right now. This is what I currently have in it:
3-Dojo loaches (my squigles)
7-Juli cory (1"-1.5")
2-giant green corys (3"-3.5")
1-giant pepper cory (3")
1-adult albino bristlenose pleco (5")
1-adult clown pleco (2")
1-juvi rubberlip/bulldog pleco (1.5")
1-juvi green phantom pleco (2")
5- nerite snails very small right now
TOO MANY- Malaysian trumpet snails
I have a planted tank with a large tiger lotus, multiple Anubis from petite nana, nana, coffeefolia, frazeri, spiralis, 2 small ocelot swords, a red "lili", and a bunch or driftwood.
I also recently (as of day 3 today) set up a paintball CO2 system and added an Eheim 2217 filter to my Filstar XP3 and XP setup, and will be removing the smaller Rena Filstar XP once the Eheim gets its bacterial load set up, in a couple weeks.
I am also in the process of building a background for my tank with cliffs and little planters for my Anubias to sit in, and hopefully will install it in the very near future.
Don't have a picture right now, but will upload when I can.

opps I forgot I also have 3 Bamboo shrimp (recent addition) in the 55 gallon and I also have a Fluval 4 gallon square tank with an Azoo filter, and Fluval SpecV-5 gallon tank with a betta male, 2 bamboo shrimp, and a mystery snail in one and a betta and a nerite snail in the other, both are planted tanks as well with add on LED lights-did not like the Fluval light setups on either tank.

Welcome to the AC....
You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

welcome to the ac, cant wait for pics, some clown loaches would take care of your snails.A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel

I think if someone thinks clownfish are called nemos they should banned from keeping sw tank.

I thought of clown loaches, but they get too big and you need more than 1 to keep them happy
