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.

Yeah I had the same problem as I'm from Australia and a gallon is 4.5461 litres. You can get a conversion on this site on the Conversions link. Aquarium Calculator - Calculate Fish Tank Volume.
Herbivore is an organism that eats vegetation-plants/leaves etc..
Cheers for that link.

what sorta fish do you have in your aquarium? I've started off with the Zebra Danio's like it says on this website. I got 6 of them.

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.

Petrol isn't that cheap over here. where bouts are you on the globe? how much is petrol there?

I'm from Corwall in England. I heard it was dead cheap over your way. I'm paying 89 pence litre at the moment which is about 2.28 NZD. so have I got my hopes up on that then? how much is it?
