    Hello Folks,

    Been 15+ years since I've had an aquarium, but never lost the bug for keeping fish and plants. Just started a family and had some kiddoes so priorities, priorities. However, it's time, and I'm diving back in with both feet. Just trying to reeducate myself and get updated in the advancements in planted tanks (my #1 interest), and came across this forum.

    I look forward to setting up a few planted tanks with simple/common species like swordtails, tetras, and shrimp (I love shrimp). Also, maybe a non-plan tank with Cichlids so my kids can experience the excitement of seeing mouthbrooders in action.

    Hope to chat and learn for y'all that are part this community. Thanks!

    Hi there. Welcome back to the hobby. It's nice to know that you want to start with the hobby again. The best fish to start with I believe are guppies, mollies, platies, neon tetras, or cory catfish. But of course, there is plenty of fish that are best for your tank. For the substrate, you can try sand, gravel, or can be none. You may also need good filters and a test kit and your good to go. Or you may want to try other species too like an eel, I've heard that they're low maintenance. I've also found this site here https://www.tankarium.com/freshwater-eels/ about how to take care of eels and makes me want to have my own too, maybe soon. :)
