The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
1) Pick your main fish.. If it is going to be a school. a pair or two big fish. One large fish. Pick that main beautiful fish you like so you can then work everything else around it. Oscars or Cichilds. Find the breed you like best and work everything else around that.
2) Once you have your main fish picked you can find fish that are compatible with them, a smaller school fish (or if you picked a school as the main center piece....i dunno people do that...then you can pick a big fish ) you see where I am going with this.
3) Pick the cleaners and algae eaters.
I would start setting up my tank if I were the both of you lol :) Get it cycling!
