Advice:Though i love landscaped tanks with sand etc I have chosen for no gravel / sand in my take to ensure the best water quality possible as im obsessed with discus. Since removing the sand i am actually very happy with the overall look.Tank cleaning has been massivley reduced also. In less than 15 mins i can change 30% water and have a quick tidy of the filter.
About Yourself:I'm a huge worrier and perfectionist. I started fish keeping after reading that watching fish is calming and can be a form of meditation and mindfulness. I watch my tank to clear my head. (And I love all animals)
Advice:Keep going with it. Been keeping a fish tank for about 20 years now and only in the last few years have i got the hang off it. Everyday is a learning day and still a long way to go but it has been fun. Listen to all advice and do a lot of forum searching to answer questions.
