    Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone could give me a good step by step guide on how to totally set up a 10 gallon aquarium. What I need, what I can have in it, how to cycle it, when to clean it. OR, if you can, a good reference to where I can find this info. Thanks so much.

    Although it's a wonderful thing to just have people give you instruction or tell you what fish to get, doing research yourself is a very valuable tool when keeping fish. If you research it yourself, your more likely to understand the "why's" and "how's" versus if you just read what we write. You also have a better chance of retaining the information.

    I would suggest you go to the fish store with a pad and pencil, write down the names of the fish you're attracted to, then go home and google your butt off seeing what each species needs for space, tank mates, food, etc.

    Visit the links that Ken provided you with regard to setting up the tank and how to cycle it.
