i am new here jsut found the website.
back quite a few years ago i had a pretty large (40 gal tall) or so tank when i lived at my parents house. after i moved out and got married i never messed with the tank any more. well now with having 2 kids in the house we are wanting to start it again.
back then i mainly had Ciclids for the most part...but also had a problem with keeping them alive. back then i didnt have access to the internet like i do now, so i feel more comfortable with getting a tank back since i can learn more about setting it up and so on so it is a nice tank.
im not partial to any certain kind of fish but want something with some color and an active fish and a hearty fish as wel. was hopeing that some of you could help me choose a fish as well as what i need to do to set the tank up right before the fish go in..so please could someone help me out i would really appriciate it as well as my kids.
