Advice: learn as much as you can before you for all the fish's needs and their environment keep only compatable species together- sometimes it is trial and error...doesnt hurt to start small and work as you go, you will alwzays want to try new things and upgrade anyway...filtration and water changes are critical. feed a variety of foods not just flake or pellets. quarentine new fish. spend time watching so you know whats going on, if something changed ,or for the enjoyment... work up to that saltwater tank you are dreaming about...its alot more than just adding marine salt!

About Yourself: grew up with fish, getting in the hobby now just recently.the fish brighten up my rooms and i always want to try something new or find room and a reason for more...


The tanks not too bad doogle. Like the bright colors you have going on. I think if you went went with a black or blue background you'd be amazed at how your fish will show up. Other then that a wonderful cichlid tank that I'm sure they love better then the LFS. I just can't get enough ciclids! And your right I tell everyone, if they are looking for tank additions, to buy cichlids and let them eat all the fish they have. The ones that survive are some hardy smarty fish! fish avatar
