Advice: Go slow, read read, read. But go as big as you can (tank size) afford. Add fish slowly, and feed fish less than you think.

About Yourself: Getting back into the hobby hard with my new Amazon biotope tank.... I started out around 1995 and have generally had a tank most of the time since, with some breaks every now and then.
