Kept a ten gallon freshwater community tank all through childhood, bred veiltail and DT Bettas in high school until college when I had to give it all up for awhile. Recently broke in my first 10 gal in 15 years and it is loaded with four different snail species, dozens of baby blonde guppies and not nearly enough plants (yet!).
