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!

About Yourself: Former U.S. Marine Combat photojournalist. I'm now a wedding photographer. I had fish tanks growing up, but never paid much attention to them. This is my first planted tank and I love paying attention to the details, checking water, etc. I have a smaller tank for the kids, with Sponge Bob's house in it, among other decorations. But this tank is daddy's!
Fish Kept: (2) Bolivian Rams (6) White tip tetras (11) Neon Tetras (1) Bristlenose Pleco (2) Otto Cats (3) Cory Cats (1) Mystery snail
Corals/Plants: Onion plants. Java fern. Spiralis. Anubias Nana. Driftwood
Tank Size: 37 gallons
Advice: Make sure you complete the cycle before adding your first fish! It will solidify your chances of having a healthy tank going forward. I do 50% water changes weekly. This keeps the water fresh. (Hence the name "freshwater fish") :)
