Quote: Don't do today what you can put off until tomorrow.(Only joking, of course)
About Yourself: Have kept a tropical tank for around 30 years and it's that long ago I can't remember what got me into it, probably the beauty of the fish in particular the Siamese Fighting Fish which I managed to breed a few years back. Sat up until around 2.30 am watching them fertilize the eggs and put them into the bubble nest. In general I just love keeping fish and find it rewarding once the tank is all set up and planted out well, the latter being the hardest to do for me. Pete.

Tank Size: 90 gallons
Advice: Spend plenty of time observing your fish and don't forget to do regular water changes of around 15 to 20% once or twice a week, I do it twice a week. I now use RO water because I have tested my tap water and found that it is high in nitrate. I have my own RO filtration unit and also use the water for making cups of tea, which I must tell you tastes far better than tap water. Another thing to remember is always wash your filters in a bucket of water that you have just drained from your tank and NOT under the tap, if you have more than one filter as I do then you can clean one and leave the other for a month, this way you will always have good bacteria in one of them. There is plenty of good info on the net now, so just read up and filter the info to suit your particular needs.
