November '00 - Community Collection!

Community tanks are by far the most popular choice in the hobby, especially (but not only) for beginners, since it´s the kind of setup that best satisfies a hobbyist´s urge to get to know many different types of species from all over the world. Not surprisingly, compatibility is one of the main issues to be considered here, and the best way to be successful is usually to stick close to the "average" in all aspects of the setup: medium sized tank, medium planted, small-medium sized fish, reasonably peaceful and tolerant species, pH close to neutral, medium hardness, and so on. Even with this "restriction" in mind, the choices are still virtually infinite...with a little research and a touch of creativity you can come up with some really nice and rewarding setups, such as the fine examples shown below!
