Advice: Take your time and DONT USE CHARCOAL!!!!(please read ahead as to why!!) If you decide to not use charcoal (and save a lot of $$), you MUST do at least a 30% water change at least once every other week. My tank is a little overstocked (they are African Cichlids!) and I do a 30% water change every week. They are breeding like crazy and it's the easiest tank to take care of.
