    Welcome and sounds like an impressive setup!! I had to sell off all my tanks a few years ago, but miss them terribly. I am thinking small with a 10 gallon tank but not sure what livestock....

    Welcome to the forum. Nice list of tanks. When you jumped back in, you certainly jump in with both feet :)

    Have you considered shrimp as an option? It's actually rather fascinating to watch them in a small tank full of moss and things like spiderwood. I brought in some yellow shrimp, painted fire red and some blue dream/blue diamond for breeding purposes and I find myself watching the shrimp colonies quite often.

    Great suggestion!! I have not set up the 10 gallon tank yet, but am curious if ECAS still has the seeded medium exchange? It was setup a few years ago for newbies or someone wanting to set up a first tank. Basically, a member with an established aquarium would give a piece of medium from there filter to help the new tank.

    Actually have a small group - 15 to 20 shrimp in the Nano 33 gallon. And a couple of ghost shrimp in the 'jar' setups.

    I just recently added a few ghost shrimp to a 120 gallon community tank and they are absolutely awesome. They are bigger than I expected them to be, but they have voracious appetites. Between the otos, the amano shrimp and the ghost shrimp, they make a pretty reliable "clean" crew.

    The ghost shrimp are a lot bolder than I expected as well. They don't seem to be afraid of anything. I quite like them.

    One of my ghost shrimps is now rather large and has been in a small jar nano with a dwarf puffer .... which by reputation is not shrimp-safe and current appetite loves snails.
