Advice: Well I'm new to the hobby myself. Only been in it for about 8 months. But I would suggest buying the best equipment you can possibly afford. Get a canister filter, they are worth their weight in gold. Never take the word of your LFS. Do your research. Every aquarium is different. What works for your mate may not work for you. 50%PWC weekly helps your fish thrive.
Fish Kept: Loaches, Peppered Corys, Tetras, Platies, SAE's and a few odd bods.
Corals/Plants: Crypts, Swords, Anubias, Hygro, & Chain Swords.
I now use Hygrophila for filling large spaces as it grows very fast & responds excellently to CO2 and ferts & is extremely easy to grow. Although I still keep one Blue Stricta as I've had it for about a year and it's kind of sentimental.
