Hi, just got on. I do not know how to use this web page yet. I started out asking for advise on canister filters but did not get a responce yet. Any help you can give me would be nice. This site is great, I just need to learn to use it.

hello and welcome.
i'm sure you will get the help you need,we have members here from
all over the worls,so time differs for most of us,so sometimes it may take a little while
for your post to be answered.
you'll get the hang of using this site it's very user friendly.

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.

Hello, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping.

I found your post on filters, it's in the correct section of the forum so I expect others will see it and offer suggestions from their experiences. I will be, momentarily.

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]

Hi Brad, its going very well! No dead fishes, we love it. We did buy a Ream filter ( for 250 gal) the water is cristal clear. We are spending too much time just looking at the tank. We set up the 55gal with about 25 fish ( small ). Last night we tried to do our 1st water change, did not go well, we do not know if we have low water pressure, or volumn but today our friend (they have a 125 gal tank) will be over, so we think we will get it worked out. Please stop by any time to see it. People ask us the names of the fish and we are at a loess to name them. Do you miss the tank? Best to you and yours, Bob and Linda
