Advice: Slow and easy. Don't cut corners on filtration, shoot for atleast 10x/hr water turnover and dont waste your time with carbon!!! Use most if not all available space for Bio-Media. Nerite snail are the only way to go for algae control, never use algaecides. Feed your fish New Life Spectrum food. And last, but not least cycle tank with fish food not ammonia!
