I want to set up a 40 gallon tank this summer, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to do it yet. I'd only really been consider myself as being in the hobby for three or four months and I've only owned bettas before. I have three bettas right now. Two are in a divided 10 gallon and the third is in a 10 gallon long by himself. They're all very happy and active, and they have huge appetites. I want to start taking care of more difficult fish, but I'm not really sure where to start. My parents have agreed that I can get a 40 gallon tank this summer, but I'm kind of worried that I'm not experienced enough to take care of it properly. The last thing I'd want is for any fish to suffer because I took on more than I could manage. Are 40 gallons a lot harder to take care of than 20s or 30s? Would it be a better idea to start with a smaller tank?
