I have been into aquariums off and on for 12 years or so. Started with a 10gallon planted peapuffer tank, then had a few saltwater tanks, then back to planted freshwater, then back to saltwater and now back into planted tanks. The 5 and 10 gallon tanks are planted betta tanks. The ten gallon is setup and going through the startup algae pains but besides me going overzealous with ferts too early and causing green water is going well. The 5s are in the process of being setup. Then I will start putting the 75 together. I have not posted pictures to forums since photobucket went to paid service.

Questions to start:
What hosting service or method to share pictures now days?

Green water, wait and let it run its course or do I need to intervene if I want clear water again?

75g stocking help, no heater nano fish and shrimp. My original thought was to do yellow shrimp, golden white cloud minnows, rice fish, and cpds. As many shrimp that can breed out and shooting for 40 or so of each of the types of fish. Is 3 schools of different fish too much? Or would one giant school be better?

Will be nice to join the forum with a tank again! Thanks!

My friend has a similar setup as you with 2x5gallon tanks a 33long and a 75. He has blue shrimp in one 5, bright red in the other, and dumps the babies once they are big enough in the 75 for a mix of both red and blue. For fish in the 75 he has about 6 yellow fork tail rainbows, 6 spotted blue eyed rainbows, about 20 or so lambchop rasboras, a couple of hillstream loaches, some ottos and some nerite snails.

Tank has lots of action and lots of color

edit: oh yeah....he also has no heater in the tank and he told me temp ranges from 73 to 76 degrees
