I got the bug (20gal -> 55 gal -> 90 gal)


As the title suggests I've upgraded twice in the last few months. I started with a hand-me-down 20 Gal. A friend then gave me a 55 gal, and now I just got a 90 gallon off craigslist to replace the 20 gal that's not taking up enough space. So I got the bug 3 tanks in 4 months.

so any suggestions on the new 90 gal? I have a nice community tank of neon tetras, danios, and cory cats in the 55 gal. I'm thinking something larger and maybe semi-agressive. Any suggestions for a newbie?

That's not the bug friend.
I am going to pick up another 12 tanks come Saturday.

I'm saving up for my first one, I think I'll start with a 75gal right away. Probably cheaper than upgrading several times

Has to be over 100 tanks. And permit from FL Dept. of Ag.
This run of tanks brings me only to 48. Still short of the 50 goal by year's end. But Petco must be having another sale this year.

I was looking at 3 of these but decided to pass.

You should do discus. When you upgrade again to something like a 150g, consider a fahaka puffer. The are awesome.

I have 4 tanks in my house, but only 3 running. My goal: When my husband and I buy a house we will be looking for one with a decent basement to turn into a massive fish room for breeding angels, rams, bettas, not sure what else yet. I have basic plans made up that I am constantly adding different ideas too, but can easily be changed around to fit the specific space we find. It's still a few years down the road though.
