I've been mesmerized by aquascaping for about a year now and am finally going to buy a tank and see what I can do. I've done a bit of research myself so that I at least know what to expect and I'm really looking forward to getting my hands dirty (or wet...). So I decided to start with a small tank for now, something from 10-20g, and it's going to be an ADA because they look awesome. This has leaves me with either the 60-P or 45-P from what I can tell unless anyone has a suggestion for a beginner. As for the layout that I want... I'm thinking of doing a sort of minimalist zen-style with mostly short grass-like plants and maybe a few hedge-looking ones for some depth, and some cool rocks or other hardscape. My main concern with a smaller tank though, and my main question is, would fish be happy in either tank? If possible, I'd like to use the smaller 45-P because it's cheaper and I already have a cabinet that the tank would fit on top of (the 60-P is a little too big). Ideally, 5 or 6 small schooling fish would be great. Any recommendations for this? Or maybe a couple cichlids or something would be a better idea? I don't know a great deal about any of this stuff yet but these forums looks like a nice place to learn!
