Advice:To have a successful aquarium you have to be very patient. Make sure you read up on the nitrogen cycle and let your tank cycle! While your tank is cycling (will be about a month) read up on the fish you plan on getting and the specific plans you have for your fish tank. Make sure you are not overstocking, your fish get along, feeding the right amount, etc.
Description:This is my 40 gallon (breeder) planted freshwater tank.
About Yourself:My love for domesticated fish started when I conducted dives in the Marine Corps. I know like to challenge the rules when it comes to my tanks, I constantly build communities of fish who normally would not get along, but as you see I have different types of Cichlids and other various tropical living in harmony..
Advice:Make sure to fully cycle your new tank before spending a bunch of money on fish, the time spent cycling your tank could save you from a lot of dead fish and wasted money, i prefer a fishless cycle with a little fish food and of course my personal favorite chemical tetra brand "AquaSafe Plus"
