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.
The first step is to thoroughly clean the tank. Dont skip this important step just because the glass of the aquarium looks clean. Use a mild detergent in warm water to scrub out the tank. Rinse out the tank thoroughly to completely remove all traces of debris and detergent. Flush out the cleaned tank several times with fresh water to ensure there are no traces of detergent left behind.
Now, think about the fish which fish you want, dont buy them but do think about what fish you want. Is this going to be a species tank or a community tank. I like community tanks simply because I like to see how the fish interact with each other. Choose some top middle and bottom feeders to balance the tank. Make sure that they all get on together. A bit of research and planning will avoid potential problems later. Most aquarium shops will advice on compatibility of fish.
