Understand the aquarium "Cycle"
Dont over stock.
Research your fish BEFORE you purchase them.
Dont over feed your fish, all food should be consumed within 30 seconds.
Maintain good water quality through regular water changes.

To name a few

Hi welcome,

Like when u say " a " tetra most tetra's need a school/shoal. Meaning mulitiple of the same fish to make them more comfortable. What size tank are you planning on getting? And make sure u do read up on the cycle it is the most important part or u will end up with floating fishy's:( So please do that and than just ask questions from there!
Thanks

Nick
