Advice: only had a fish tank for 5 months but i've learnt: Water changes are the most important thing. I do 33% water changes per week, just to be safe on water quality. When you check your water parameters with test kits, test your tap water if used, It surprised me how much ammonia and nitrates and phosphates were in there to begin with. There is tons of free information on the internet just check and check again. Join a web community, there are lots of experienced people out there happy to help you, just for the love of the hobby.

About Yourself: Started off as a present for my partner, then all hell broke loose and i started buying lights and researching everything possible. We have 3 tanks now and our 4ft is our largest, we also have a wavey front tank and a cichlid tank with a mated pair of red jewels breeding like mad. The wave tank has Angels that look like they are ready to pop at any time :-)
Corals/Plants: Anubias, wysteria.
Tank Size: 50 gallons
Advice: Start with the right lighting. Use low light plants such as Anubias first then trial small leaf pants. With planted tanks only run air stones and venturi at night.
