Hi to you Dan! I'm new here to this site,but not to the amazing hobby of keeping fish! If you start out following the correct protocol,testing the pH,water conditions,etc....you'll be getting a good foothold in the hobby! The best thing to remember,IMO,is replacing the water..A LOT!! When cycling a tank,and having added my dither fish,i try and replace the water at least a quarter of the tank every 3-4 days for 2 weeks or so. That way,you get used to working with the water you've got where you live(water hardness,pH,chlorine,etc.)and just getting a routine down that you'll be using anyway...changing out the water,and keeping your little fishes happy!
Glad to see new people getting into a great hobby,but also,asking questions! I can't tell you how many times that I was called to "rescue" other peoples tanks(fish!) just because they were too impatient to wait and cycle and test the new tank...and didn't ask ANY questions at all!Patience will pay off,as will a bit of reading up on the subject at hand!!
Good luck Dan!!
