Advice: Take your time, its not a race.
You will have days where you get fed up, everybody ive spoken to about the hobby has, dont be disheartened and put off by this!!!
Always get equipment to suit a bigger tank than you have.
Keep a log of what you did and when, very helpfull to keep a record of water parameters and amounts of additives used and also newly observed fish behaviour.
Dont buy stuff on impulse, check prices on the net first.
Dont take the advice of just one local shop owner as gospel, ask around and read forums, what works for one person might not work for another.
