What will you be putting in the tank as far as livestock? Plants? When determining what you need to the tank as far as filtration, lighting, substrate, ect, one must first plan one what is going into the tank. That is step #1. Some do set the tank up then select the fish to matc h he set up, but I find it much easier to select the stocking plan first. You will find that you will have less heartache when you find a fish that you want and can't get it because you tank isn't set up to keep it.
