How about getting a book on how to setup and keep aquariums ?? Might be a good idea.

Good Day ....

RE: help me on a new tank

This helped alot getting back into this hobby after 15-20 yrs.I had lots of trouble getting the tank established then from when I was a kid. The area I live now has private wells that added to my problems of doing it the "old fashioned way" with a few danio's as starter fish. All I did was kill alot of fish. Read all the other articles as well.
