About Yourself:I am fifteen years old and have been ejoying this hobby since I was eleven,My first tank was going well but they caught a disease from two much light exposure and died, but i have learned from my mistakes and have been running this fishtank for about a year now with out a single fish diying. Thats pretty good two me.
Advice:Don't ever TRUST PETCO people! They don't know Sh*t! Bunch of dumb kids work there. One guy at the fish department told me it was okay to use the drops for alges, and fin rots and it killed 7 of my fish except for my betta he was the only one that survived....Do the research online on the fish before buying and don't listen to what the petco people say about what's the amount of drops to use, read it and put alittle less then what it tells you to put.
My 38 Gallon Aquarium, 3 Discus, 6 Tiger Barbs, 3 Chinese Algae Eaters, one Gold Nugget Pleco, and a Gold Chinese Algae Eater. I'm using a Marineland C-Series Multi Stage Canister Filter C-220, the best fiter out there. I personaly think this filter is better then the Eheim, because it allows no bypass, it forces the water through the filter media trays and not around them, all the other canisters allow 40% to 60%.

Advice:My advice is the same as most peoples, read everything you can find on the care of the speices of fish you like ,investigate future tanks mates just the same.
Buy the biggest tank you can afford.Because water perameters won't change so drastically in larger tanks.
Also and most important do not over stock your tank with fish,unless you have a large sump filtation system or an expensive canister filter. This i just my opinion but it will save you in the long run as far your pump's filter media cost's.. HOPE THIS HELPS..
