do you recommend 120 gallon to beginners with fish tanks?
cause i found a great deal on a 120 gallon fish tank with all the supplies included and i was just wondering if it is a great starter?

I believe it is always best to get the largest tank that one has room for and can afford. :)

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

A large tank is much more forgiving than I small one because they are more stable and all changes happen less abruptly. Keep in mind that an aquarium of this size is very, very heavy. Make sure your floor/stand can support the weight.

I totally agree with all of the above. If you started out small it would only be a matter of time until you were itching to upgrade, so may as well do it now!

How are you planning on cycling it, and do you know what sort of fish you'd like to keep yet?
