    Hey there,

    i'm totaly new to this tropical fish hobby and am a little confused about gallons. i'm from New Zealand so i'm use to reading letres. can you please explane how many gallons there are to a letre.

    could you also please explane the meanings of herbivores and all those sort of words you use for each fish?

    cheers,
    Adz.

    you've had your tank for a while then lol

    I've only just had my tank going for bout 3 weeks, so i've got 6 Zebra danio's but i'm soo tempted to get more of them.
    I love watching them swim in their schools.
