I am a relative newbie to aquariums, though I had one when I was younger, I don't think I did it very well. I want to have another aquarium now and do everything right, so I have come to you, the fish forum community to help me out!
A friend has offered to give me a 20 gallon aquarium with a stand, I have accepted, and started shopping around for components. I have also done a great deal of research on cycling, and I think I understand it.
Specifically, I want to get some expert advice on the equipment I purchase and compatibility issues on the types of fish I plan to get.
First off the equipment I plan to order from #1 Big Al's Aquarium Supplies: Fish Tanks, Stands, Decorations, Filters, Lighting
(I am Canadian, this website had the best prices I could find):
*Aquarium Pharmaceuticals (AP) Master test kit: $39.99 CAD
* Marineland Penguin 100B Power Filter, bio wheel: $21.99
*Big Als 50 watt heater: $10
* Tetra Whisper 40 Air Pump: $23.99
Of course I will also be getting gravel, decorations etc.
The fish I am thinking about getting are:
*Angelfish (not sure if they will be compatible)
Overall I am looking ot have an interesting and active tank. Thanks in advance for all your help!
