Corals/Plants:plastic plants and i also have scottish cobbles from the garden centre, a snip at 6 quid a bag compared to local acquatics store. Ps if anyone could give me a plan on how to have real plants that grow without fish eating them etc pls let me know. Ive read a bit but not been successful
Advice:i am fairly new to hobby(about 2 years). water changes every week 20 - 25% important. get as much advice as you can (but dont believe everything), buuild on experience. Also fish: do research but not all fish which are aggressive are. they are like humans some are some are not, if you know what i mean.
Advice:Take it slow, don't rush, let it cycle, you will have alot of money if you take it slow.
