  3. Think about what sort of fish u want and then choose a substrate- there is so many around, i personally prefer Eco Complete as it is easier to keep plants down despite being an inert substance.

    Then decide on whether you want to inject CO2 and shop for plants- for a beginner crypts and anubias are nice and easy plants (Pets@Home etc) and this is when u need to read a lot about what plants u like and their requirements. Some plants ‘melt’ in the initial stages so don’t be shocked.

    Next is cycling the aquarium and then it will be ready for livestock. It is a great hobby, invest some time for research in the beginning as it will make it much easier long term. Good luck.

  4. Did you pay for shipping? Else that person just paid you to take their tank xD
