    I'm new to this forum and to having an aquarium. Though it is my boyfriends one and he wasn't taking care of it, so I decided to take care of them. He bought me more fishes and new equipment to take care of them. :3 I'm really loving the fishes, they are so cute and playful. I ended up taking over the aquarium. :D though I have no idea what I'm doing I'm just doing a lot of research and already received help from many here and am very thankful for that!

    Welcome to Fishlore :)

    Basics of fish keeping:
    Don't over stock
    Bigger tank is better and easier to care for
    More filtration is better
    The Nitrogen Cycle is the most important thing ever
    Fresh clean water is good but make sure it's treated
    Ammonia and Nitr(I)tes are bad
    Nitrates are harmless up to a point
    MTS is very contagious
    Water changes are essential
    Seriously, the Nitrogen Cycle is the most important part of fish keeping

    did I mention the Nitrogen Cycle?

    Thank you for the warm welcomes and the informations. :3 I'm having so much fun taking care of them and watching them play. My bf told me he has a very big tank at his parents and couple fishes. Just saw it today, he has 2 tanks, one about 75 gallons and the other is about 120 gallon. I'm planning to eventually bring the120 gallon back with us, along with the fish. He has a giant clown loach in the tank 0.0! And Yeay after that happens I can create my tank... and get more fishes! I'm so excited, i want to do and oriental style tank. What does your guys tanks look like?
