Advice: DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!! - Most people don't know as much as they claim. TAKE YOUR TIME - nothing happens fast or intant in this hobby. Cycling, cures, growth,...nothing. DON'T COMPROMISE - Get the best stuff for you tank based on your homework. TEST, TEST, TEST...Water quality is the most important thing in the hobby. Your tap, the tank, the water at the pet shop. Test every bodies water, don't care if they like it or not. Because most pet shops don't give warranties and if the fish is diseased it could kill everything. READ, READ, READ - For example...Learning how to aclimate properly. Compatibility. Read about who has the best test kits, like Hagen for NH3 or how most copper test kits don't work.

Advice: Educate yourself. Read from different sources and correlate information since there's lots of conflicting information on web sites and by people posting on different forums. Plan ahead. Where are you going to put the tank? How big of a tank can you realistically place in that location? Will that area support the weight of the aquarium? Estimate ~10 lbs. per gallon which includes substrate and other objects. Are you willing to do 20% water changes of 20 gallons on a 100 gallon tank or would you rather do 20% water changes of 6 gallons on a 20 gallon tank? How many fish do you expect to see while viewing the aquarium? Size accordingly. Use tool and bounce ideas around with forums members. What type of fish do you want? Are they going to get along together? Do they eat the same food? Can they coexist at the same water temperature and water environment. Are you going to want live plants? Are you going to pick species that will be able to thrive in the environment that the fish will live in? Are you willing to trim and care for plants as well as the fish? More questions than answers. These are some of the questions you should research and have answers to before you buy your equipment. You then need to do your research on the different type of equipment to house your new world. Enjoy!

Quote: You only live life once, just do it to the fullest.
About Yourself: Love this hobby. Last year is when I got back into this. This time full throttle. In addition to this new cichlid aquarium, last summer I built a 2100gallon koi pond w/ 3 cascading waterfalls + 1 large waterfall w/ a 7 ft. drop in my backyard. Also set up a 500g tank in garage for some plants+for holding new fish to prep+treat them for diseases etc. prior to adding them to pond. If you would like to see some pics of the pond or other please feel free to send me a msg. Or if you have any questions abt ponds.
Fish Kept: For inside aquarium with pics, used to hold 2 of my favorite platinum KOI's then had to take them out because they decided to mate and have fry's (KOI babies). Now turned into a Cichlid tank. Currently have 9 various Cichlids, 1 exotic pleco.
Corals/Plants: Several fake ones and 2 live ones. My tank however has mostly different kinds of real rock which helps the PH. Also have a mix of crushed Coral and gravel. Hated dealing with an all natural sand substrate.
Tank Size: 110 gallons
Advice: If using an additional PowerHead for good circulation make sure on Timer. Don't keep adding (store bought) chemicals to water. Give enough time for whatever filtration system you are running do its job.
