Advice for a newbie

Hi all.

I am looking for some advice and hope you can help. I am currently saving for my first tank and am wondering what size would be best? It's going to be between a 60x30x35 or a 45x29x30. I plan on re-scaping fairly often, as Its part of the hobby that interests me, but I don't have the space for multiple tanks. I would prefer the 60cm tank but would opt in for the smaller tank if it would be a lot cheaper to re-scape on a regular basis.

Any advice is welcome.

Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

I assume this is in cm?

Anyway you will find that the first time or two you scape a tank is by far the most expensive. After that you will be able to reuse the same materials you already have. Unless you have trouble keeping any plants alive, you will be able to reuse plants and the gosh darn things tend to grow, and with little effort, multiply. So that will make rescaping even easier.

Thus I would not hesitate to go as big as you can comfortably go. It will be expensive. But it won't be expensive to rescape if you reuse your supplies.

Good luck!

Thank you for your reply.

How do you go about reusing plants when rescaping? How do you store them etc? Is this possible with carpet plants too?

Thanks again.
