Always purchase your fish from a reputable dealer to avoid the likelihood of introducing diseased fish to a tank. Never add plants or fish from wild to a fish tank - the microorganisms and bacteria attached to fish from the wild can be deadly for fish in a tank!
Once you have bought your fish tank and set it up, you will need to add the decorations. This will be the finishing touches to the start of a very relaxing hobby.
Now it is time for patience. The biggest mistake that most people make with a fish tank set up it is not cycling the tank properly. Your fish will be living in their own toilet. Their waste together with any uneaten food will rot and create Ammonia which is poisonous to them. So you need to allow the nitrogen cycle to establish fully before adding any fish. There are several ways of speeding this up but I find the household ammonia method the quickest and easiest.
Keep your lid on the tank. It has 2 very important purposes. It keeps the fish from jumping out and it keeps the water from evaporating too fast.
Once the tank is full turn everything on and let it run until the water is up to temperature. Now add your plants, putting the large ones at the back and leaving space for them to grow.
