Advice: Research, research, research..... then experiment, experiment, experiment! Ask for help, no question is too simple! Start out with way too much live rock and way to little fish if you're starting a reef tank! Ensure to keep whatever your doing constant, and when you decide to try something new do it gradually and monitor your animals behaviour.

Quote: Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff!
About Yourself: I started with a really small 10 gal tank... My platys started having tonnes of babies, so I decided to upgrade my aquarium and get into live plants.
Fish Kept: gouramis, platys, cardinal tetras, white skirt tetras, pleco, albino cory, electric blue lobster, feeder shrimp (yeah, they're supposed to be food, but they keep reproducing!)
Corals/Plants: narrow leaf bacopa, cambomba, amazon sword, java moss, banana plant, red tiger lotus, a few artificial plants
Tank Size: 35 gallons
Advice: Knowledge and patience is key...I have lost many fish and some plants to my inexperience and lack of patience. (I didn't research the electric blue lobster before I threw him in the mix, and realized afterward what a great hunter he is - I have lost MANY platys this way....)
