Advice: Build & design your tank over a period of a few days or weeks allowing you to think of new ideas to add to your design. Test your patience as much as you can especially when starting off. Read up & check out any rare species of fish or plants so that you can care to there needs as much as possible. Always get 2 or 3 opnions and cross reference advice given as most fish shops will tell you anything for a sale & may sound more experinced or knowledgable than they are. Try to stick to a few fish shops & build a relationship, it will get you personal advice from staff & pay off in an emergency. NEVER FISH SHOP WATER, always net your fish from the water they come in after you float your fish for a good while. For delicate fish you can acclimatise them by adding a bit of your water to theres, but still net them out and get rid of the water they came in. Make sure you bury you plants well, CO2 injection isnt nessary in most tanks. If you want your plants to grow then get bright lights and have as little water movement as possible avoiding stagnent areas and oxygen starvation. Co2 in the water and bright lights make plants grow & even a bit of iron fertiliser helps out sometimes. Net out dead fish & plant leaves etc asap. Inspect your fish for desease regular and WASH YOUR FILTER SPONGES IN TANK WATER.

Advice: If you plan on using rockwork in your tank, save your money & find a local stone supply company. Since you're not gonna be taking that much, they'll usually just give the stuff to you.
