Start first with what type of fish you want, then go from there. So what do you like?

Welcome to the forum! I think you'll very quickly find yourself trying to choose between many different options rather than trying to come up with one.

Put together a wish list, list the measurements of your tank to get input on which filters will work, and read up on the Nitrogen cycle. You'll have to decide whether to go with fishless or fish in cycling.

Welcome to the forum.
