Ok guys, here's the deal. I've kept fish for a long time. Starting off with goldfish, moving onto a community tank or 2, then marine and now i'm going back to freshwater again.

Here's my plan.

This is what I have already, equipment wise:

Tank = 610mm x 280mm x 300mm
Filter = Boyu canister filter (210 l/h)
Gravel= Pool filter sand (quite course)
Lights= 2 x T8's (1 x lifeglo 15w, 1 x sunglo 10w) Got ballists
Heater= 50watt

Will get:

PH test kit

Possible livestock:

2 x Rams (electric blue) or keyhole cichlids ( I really like these guys)
7 x neon tetra's
3 x peppered cory's
2 x otocinlis

2 x amazon swords

not sure what other plants to put in.

All help will be appreciated :)
Thanks guys.

hello and welcome.
the ottos are not going to be a good idea for you in the begining,
they are very sensitive,and without algae,they will probably not survive,sorry.
unless you have a very nice friend who would be willing to donate filter media
all the fish you have choses will struggel to survive,they are just not hardy enough,
sorry not to be more positive for you :(
gosh i feel awful now.
