Welcome Shadow!

First let me say Hello!.......Setting up a fish tank can be a imtimidating task when reading everything on these forums....The biggest thing is patience........Patience to allow your tank to cycle, patience to research the fish you would like to have, patience to deal with things not going as planned.........Fishkeeping can be a wonderful hobby for everyone at all ages.......

Feel free to ask any questions here..........No one SHOULD give you a hard time if you dont know or understand something.......Its better to ask for opinions and advice than to get aggravated over something that other people can help you with...........Good Luck!
