    Hey guys! I just started this hobby back in January and now I am obsessed! My wife hates it! I'm always stopping at pet stores, Petsmarts, and Petcos. I started with a 5 gallon tank from Walmart and now I have a 29 gallon. Currently I have the following fish in the tank:
    8 Neon Tetras
    4 Tiger Barbs
    2 Mollies
    2 Gouramis

    For the time being I also have 4 ADFs and some ghost shrimp in there too because I'm using their tank as a hospital tank for my 2 mollies that got some fungus

    Welcome to FishLore :). I also started with a 5g kit (raising triops actually), but then I started thinking it might be nice to have some fish or other invertebrates. That's when my 36g bowfront came in as a tropical community tank. Then I thought "Wow, it would be so cool to add a crayfish", but he'll need his own tank, thus the 10g. My wife has always wanted a crab, so we got a 6g bookshelf that now has two fiddler crabs.

    MTS will get you. It's only a matter of time. I say succumb early and enjoy it ;).

    Thanks everyone! Yea, I just need the space to develop MTS. I am in a small 1 bedroom apt and I am lucky to even have the space that I have now haha

    I rearranged my aquascape and I also took out my plastic plants. Now, my fishes have a lot more room to swim around.

    I also added a pic of my frog/hospital/quarantine tank. I have a pregnant black molly and gold dusted black molly in it right now as well.

    The last pic is my lil 1 gallon full of juvenile red cherry shrimps and 3 molly fry I saved.

    It looks fantastic! I like the 2nd photo. Looks very peaceful :) Well done! About the 1 gallon tank, if you don't know, you'll have to move the fry and juvies out as soon as they reach a certain size. Best of luck! :)
