As the title says I'm new to the forum. I've just recently taken an interest in keeping an aquarium and have purchased a 5 gallon. Contained in the 5 gallon are two Zebra Danio, a Wasp fish and 5 shrimp. Already I realize this is not enough. I'd like to upgrade to approximately a 30 gallon in the near future while still keeping the 5 gallon intact. Joining this forum I hope to learn more about the hobby and would like to learn more about keeping a healthy aquarium.

A limited budget will dictate the equipment I purchase and I am already perusing the internet for the best deals in everything aquatic. Suggestions on websites with the best prices is encouraged.

A 5 gallon makes a perfect home for a betta or similar fish that loves living alone. They really are not made for community tanks and do not lend themselves for more than a couple at the most. But they do as I have said make wonderful betta tanks.

Welcome and I do hope that you can find what you need to have the lovely tank you will enjoy. You sound devoted to your search and should be able to come up with something.
