Advice: DO YOUR HOMEWORK!!! - Most people don't know as much as they claim. TAKE YOUR TIME - nothing happens fast or intant in this hobby. Cycling, cures, growth,...nothing. DON'T COMPROMISE - Get the best stuff for you tank based on your homework. TEST, TEST, TEST...Water quality is the most important thing in the hobby. Your tap, the tank, the water at the pet shop. Test every bodies water, don't care if they like it or not. Because most pet shops don't give warranties and if the fish is diseased it could kill everything. READ, READ, READ - For example...Learning how to aclimate properly. Compatibility. Read about who has the best test kits, like Hagen for NH3 or how most copper test kits don't work.
Fish Kept: African Cichlids - Too many to list and trust me half are hard to find, for example the 'Wild Caught' Zaire Blue Frontosa or the Venustus, also called the Giraffe Hap Plecos - 3 Bushy nose Clown Loaches - 8 Red Panda Barbs - 5 Great Dainos -6
