New and wanting to learn

possumWallup

Hello from Southwest Missouri! I'm in the planning stages of my first ever planted tank and first tank, in general, since I was a little kid.

I've been reading through some threads here and there and I figured I should jump in and get more involved and learn.

That's exciting! Keep us updated what size tank are you thinking?

Weighing the pros and cons of a larger tank (75g) against something maybe a bit more manageable like a 40 gallon breeder.

Others might disagree but I don't think there is much difference in the management of a 75 vs 40g

I usually recommend new fishkeepers get the largest tank they can afford and have room for, but 75 gallons is larger than I usually have in mind. I started with a 40 gallon breeder, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. I think it's a great size even for experienced hobbyists. It's large enough to give some flexibility with stocking and aquascaping, and to keep the water parameters reasonably stable, but not so big as to be overwhelming. I also like that it's relatively shallow, which makes maintenance and the initial aquascaping much easier. However, if you're confident you won't be overwhelmed with the 75 go for it.

You beat me to it. I was thinking the same thing.
