Advice: Resist the urge to add fish too quickly! Don't overfeed! Your fish should always look hungry. Buy a master test kit and use it! Don't neglect water changes for the health of your fish and tank! Keeping your nitrates low (below 20 ppm) will help control algae! Water changes are VITAL in keeping a succesful aquarium!
