Hello everyone, names Dan. New to the aquarium world. I never owned a fish or an aquarium, but always wanted to so I figured to make the jump and start one up. Here's my journey so far. Don't have many pictures. Might not seem special but again I never built a tank.

Marineland 75 gallon tank. Came with stand as well.

I wanted heavier sand so I went with Red Flint. Harder to stir up.

Wow! Jumped right into a 75. I'm so jealous. It gives you so many more options. Have fun!

So fish tank is cycling. I'm trying to figure out what fish to throw in. 75 gallon----- 10 rummynose, 1 dwarf gourami, 5 albino cory catfish, what else would be a good mix? Will these get along? What other peaceful fishes can I add?

Rummynose are great schooling fish. In a 75 gal I'd add even more than 10 (not all at once, of course!) to make a nice big group - maybe like 16? Also, the 5 albino cory cats can be upped to 10 - that will give you some nice activity on the bottom of the tank.

You could do a couple angelfish as well, if you like them! And/or German blue rams! You have SO MANY options. I'd suggest visiting a really good fish store near you and picking a favorite fish to stock around before you start buying anything!
