I've always wanted to have an aquarium so I finally mustered enough courage and got a used set up on Craigslist. A friend of mine is a fanatic when it comes to aquariums and has promised to help me get this project going. The only thing is, he's super busy until April and I'm getting impatient staring at an empty tank staring at me all day ;D. I also found out how much more money needs to be spent in setting everything else up. It looks like I'm skipping many lunches. I look forward to learning here and making a success story out of all this.
Just in case you are curious here is what I have and what my friend thinks I should do:
Fluval 206 filter with everything Sponge&bioballs
3 Fluval heaters
Aqauclear filter 70 with spnge&media
Eheim 350surface skimmer
Whisper air pump
My friend advised me to:
1) Get Aragonite substrate
2) Look into Tanganyikan Fish (Especially shell dwellers)
Any advice to this newb is greatly appreciated. Not really sure how forums work but I guess it emails me if anyone replies?
