    It's not the size of the tanks, it's how you use them. HMPH!

    I guess my 16 and 10 would be considered mirco-machines then.

    I have Platys and Guppies in my 29g. I am thinking of getting a Dwarf Gourami when I move though as a centerpiece.
    Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
    2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
    Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
    RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.
    It is Ldoerr NOT Idoerr.

    I just recently got into the hobby, Aug 2010, and I know when i was looking for a tank i wanted a bigger tank but not super big so I would not be in over my head. I chose my 29 cause it was in decent shape and it came with most everything I needed.

    After researching fish i realized my tank was small. lol. I still enjoy working on it though and I am starting to get into a groove with it.

    What Hobbs said about Small Tank = Small fish is right on the money, luckily for me that is what I wanted, small schooling fish. Now my problem is there are so many small schooling fish I am finding I am running out of room!

    Stick with larger schools and less species and you'll like your tank better. So many try to add one or two of this and that and they end up with a bunch of unhappy fish and no complete schools.

    6 is a "bare" minimum to be considered a school. I think that number should be at least 12.

    No Message - korith   Just a 'Thank you' penguin to a water treatment guy :-D. Clean water and sanitiation is a CORNERSTONE of modern civilization that people take for granted and don't think twice about & I felt that way about it before I had fish lol. Thanks to my HS Hi - 850R   because I LOL'ed at your single neon 90 gal show fish - ddavis1979   For the help on CO2 and plants - Greentoads41   Great looking tank you have! - ~firefly~

    A 125g might look a little empty with a great white in it. Why not go with a whale shark and really use your space
