Hello gary
Welcome to TFK.

What size tank? You should also figure out the hardness/softness and PH of your tap water (assuming you'll be using tap water) before you consider which fish to stock.

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

hello and welcome.
what external have you got ?

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.

Hi Gary, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
