I loved keeping fish when I was a child I loved guppies especially. I had a 10 gallon tank but didn't know about the nitrogen cycle or really anything so at one point I had a pleco (for over 5 years), I had four bala sharks, about 10 tetras, about 15 male and female guppies and a bunch of snails all in that one small tank because the person at Walmart didn't really care. Needless to say I lost every one of those fish except for the pleco and 4 of each tetra and guppies within two months. Almost a year ago I got two male bettas and again the lady at the pet store said they'd be fine in a 0.5 gallon tank, they were ok with it until i noticed how big they had gotten and how tiny that tank looked, i went and got two 3.5 gallons as where I'm from for the both of them cost me almost $80 CAD and they were on sale! Well when I transfered them one was over the moon and soooo much more active, however the other one wasn't and I couldn't figure out why, turns out he had fin rot since I brought him home from the store. After about a few hours of research and some advice from people on the internet I got indian almond leaves, got a water test kit, and some aquarium salt. Sadly though one morning he was swimming and seemed to be getting better and when i went to feed him that night he was gone. I since have gotten another one but I made sure to check for fin rot signs now i know what to look for. Im planning on starting my 15 gallon long tank soon but not until i do more research on the type of fish I want as I dont want to repeat any of my past mistakes. In the future I'm hoping to get a 55 gallon or more. Even though I kept fish for a few years when I was younger, all this info is new to me so it feels like I'm just starting out again.
