Evening all

Hi iv just bought my first aquarium and intend keeping some tropical fish in it. It's a nice oval 250 litre tank. Iv filled it and and started it running today. Any advice on what to do before I put fish in greatly received and look forward to looking around the forum looks good so far.

Hi Paul welcome to tropical fish keeping!!

The first thing to do is cycle your tank. There few ways to do this. If you haven't already read this sticky it is a good starting point. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...-cycle-213418/ Once you decide which way to go and you have questions feel free to ask away and we will answer the best we can.

Hi Paul,

Welcome to the forum

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

hello Paul.
England are you ?
any pictures of the tank would be great

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
