Hey everyone! Yesterday was my 16th birthday, and one of my gifts was a 28g (not entirely sure it is 28, but somewhere in the 23-29 range) bowfront tank. Now, some of you may have seen my threads about a native species tank or a vampire crab paludarium. As nice as that would be, being a 28 gal it's too small for native species and being a bowfront the footprint is small and would waste a lot of verticle space. That being said, I would like to build my first community tank. Right now, I have one three gallon housing a neocaridina davidi colony, and another three gallon housing a nerite snail and a betta, both planted tanks. (Shrimp tank has anubias hastfolia, java moss, dwarf subulata, and pennywort, betta tank has pennywort, java moss, marimo ball, radican sword, and java fern. I also have a 1g hex that I am growing anacharis in.) I am so pumped for this, but I really have no idea where to start. I want to have the overgrown "jungle" look in the tank, but I know that comes with time. I've already got a friend who has offered me some jungle val and platies. But before I get caught up in plants and stocking, I simply need hardware. I have no idea where to start.
