Advice:Reasearch the fish you want to keep before you purchase them. Get a bigger tank than you think you will need (anything smaller than a 4 foot 50 gallon is best for a hospital tank). Remember the 1 inch fish you buy in a shop could turn into a 12 or 15 inch monster, so research and buy a good size tank !
