Hi all,

Total newbie to this game. Preparing a new fish tank at the moment. Joined the site for some excellent advice which seems to be the general run of things here. Looking forward to sharing.

Hi and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

There are some articles and stickies on general topics that may help you starting out. Check the Freshwater Aquarium section for one on cycling.

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]
