A belated "hi" everybody (I've already posted a barrage of questions).

I had a 40-litre tank for a few years but I got sick and didn't replace the fish as they died and eventually packed it away when I lost the last one. I recently decided to restock it but I found a crack in it so I bought a new 35-litre one (the nearest I could get to fit my stand).

I've been advised that the fish (platies) the aquarium shop sold me aren't a good fit for that tank, so I'm getting a 75-litre as well. (I didn't need much convincing to get a second tank, it can get very addictive learning and planning what to do.)

I'm hoping that the knowledgeable members here can help me with my utter confusion after reading/hearing so much conflicting information. I also aspire to eventually knowing something that might help somebody else. You never know, eventually something might sink in.

Hi Tanker,

Welcome to the forum. You should be able to find just about everything you need to know here.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
