    Hey there Ryan, welcome to the forum.

    I'm sure looking around the forum will give you a lot of ideas.

    What size tank were you planning on doing ?

    Hey Ryan, welcome to the forum.
    First tanks are SoooOoo exciting!
    So your doing freshwater tropical..nice :)

    I seen in the other post your looking at a 10-30 gallon tank--> New to aquarium / fish tank building
    Go for the biggest size you can afford...trust me on this one. Bigger tanks are easier to keep stable water chemistry wise and a lil more forgiving with "mistakes" that most newbies will come up against.

    Are you looking to do a natural looking setup (ie. Driftwood, sand or eco-complete dirt-like substrate, maybe some live plants) or a fake setup (ie. colored gravel, fake plants, ceramic decorations)?

    And last (for now) would be what are you planning on stocking IN it? (type of fish, plecos, inverts your planning to add)
