Yes agreed great job on the research its good to find someone who has taken the time to find out some info about fish keeping before jumping head first into it, Really pleased that u have put some thought into this as fish keeping can be tricky and at least ur prepared unlike alot of others who go ,out buy a tank, fill it uo with water wack in some fish and hey presto, Nothing but fishy funerals...... It really does pay off if you do your homework 1st.welcome to fishlore!!!
GREAT link that ken and nick suggested...getting the tank cycled first, is the most important step...heres another link that can help with that https://www.fishlore.com/aquariumfishforum/threads/four-methods-of-fish-less-cycling.48446/
the bigger the tank you get, the easier it is to keep water perimeters on target...
once the tank is cycled, we have many members that will help with stocking GREAT job doing research first
If you scroll to the bottom of the page you can find 3 conversion calculators. One will allow you to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa, one converts liters to US gallons and vice versa and one allows you to plug in specific dimensions of a tank (length, width and height) in inches and converts it to US and UK gallons. We have members from all over the world and it has quite often been a VERY useful tool for me since I'm not able to make the conversions off hand.i wasn't sure on the gallons to L's ;D - which is a shame -
