Advice: Do lots of research before making any purchases! When creating your tank; DIY, it's much cheaper and allows you to use your creativity (also research EVERYTHING you put inside your tank: it may need to be cured first or it may leach poisons into your water). Keep in mind what type of environment your fish naturally come from. Be careful when making temperature changes, this will greatly affect your plants over time.
