    New member from Huntington

    Hey everyone. Just joined up after a couple weeks of lurking. I just got a 60 gallon about 3 weeks ago and I'm finishing up the cycling process now and hope to have fish in there this weekend. This is my first tank in quite a few years, and the biggest tank I've owned. My roommate had a 55 gallon for a bit and then I inherited a 30 gallon when I moved to a new apartment. Never did any planted tanks before so this will be my first one. I plan on keeping it low tech and just stocking it with some swords, java ferns, and some moss. Still deciding on what type of fish I'll be putting in but likely will go with a community tank.

    Welcome! 60g for a first tank! Very nice!
    You cant go wrong with Neon Tetra or Cardinal Tetra. Maybe a betta in it as well. Be sure to take some pictures!

    Thanks! I’ve been leaning towards some barbs as I had them in both my previous tanks, and perhaps a bristlenose pleco. Part of me still wants to discus but that’s not likely to happen for a while.

    Here’s the tank as is. Lots of planting to do still

    Thanks all. Tank is coming along well. I just Also bought a JBJ 10g all in one. Going to plant that one up heavily! Likely do a beta and see if I can get away with some shrimp in there too

    Here’s an update pic on the 60
