Advice: Go to a fish store where the staff know what they're talking about - and listen. Fish temperments, health, water conditions, etc.. Do what's right for our finned friends. Also- if you're planning on using driftwood, be aware that you will have orange water.... even after soaking / treating it.

Quote: "A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?"- Albert Einstein
About Yourself: I started when I was 12 after envying a tank at my library. I did the research and started with a ten gallon which ran successfully for a year until we moved. So far, it's been my healthiest tank, though I've gained so much more practical knowledge.
Fish Kept: Over the years and in different tanks: Tropical Freshwater: Platties, Swordtails, Neon Tetras, Corydoras, Clown Loach, Rosy Barbs, Chinese algea eater Coldwater Freshwater: Goldfish (Commons, Orandas, Ryunkins, Lionheads, Comets, Fantails, Telescope Eyes, Pearlscales), Dojo loaches, Bristlenose pleco, White Cloud Mountain Minnows
Corals/Plants: Java Ferns and Moss (easy!) Amazon Sword Ludwig Wisteria ...and others I can't remember
Tank Size: 55 gallons
Advice: RESEARCH! Make the Nitrogen Cycle an important part of this research, and don't skimp on the time it requires. With goldfish, 10 gallons per fish is a good rule for those new to the hobby.
