Adam is one of my mates. He doesn't have any fish yet, but is in the process of buying his first tank. I told him it would be best if he joined a forum for advice, preferably, this one :P

Good advice Sam!
Glad to have you overboard Adam (That's like onboard, but more fish orientated...)!

Yeah, I'm gonna buy a tank. I'm going to have a look around them all, see which one best suits my room.

Rather than suiting your room, you could really do with a tank that suits the sort of fish you want to keep...
For example - you wouldn't want a 12" tank if your fish is going to get that big! :blink:

What sort of fish are you interested in? That way we can advise on the size of tank (and possibly the make) and help you find the best tank all round - for both your room and your fish! ^_^

I'm really after Tropical-ish Fish. I wouldn't mind some Guppies, Platies, Neons, etc.

I'm trying to get a Peak Aquatics tank, I can get them at the trade price.

Hi Adam. As someone who's just started out I can tell you you'll get great advice here. I'm sure sam will show you alot too. It's hard but don't rush into anything. Let your tank cycle properly before getting fish then add them gradualy. :cheers:

Good posting Hamburger! Also, try to go as big as you possibly can, bigger tanks are far more stable than the smaller ones, and actually need less maintinance than the smaller ones....plus, more fish and more fun!

Welcome again, and hope we can help you out!

I agree with Saracen. At the moment I have a 6Gal running, a 10G and a 20 - the 20 is FAAAAAR less work than the others...
20G is a good start for a beginner - you can pick em up fairly cheaply as well.
Best way to "silent cycle" your tank in my opinion - chuck a frozen prawn in for a couple of weeks, and do daily water tests. It'll finally balance at all 0's - then you can start adding stuff slowly. So far, my silents have ranged anywhere between 2 and 6 weeks to set up properly.
Hope that helps.

Oh, and make sure the standing area is strong enough - average weight for a 20G is about 88-90kilos...!
