    Hi there,
    I'm also a newby. Maybe I should give you my tank details before asking advice he.
    Size 183cm x 48cm x 48cm. The pump I got from a friend. Fluval Biolife. Apparently its a multi-stage filter that fits into the tank. Its a all in one. Tricle filtration (whatever that means) or biological filtration, heater and pump (.55 gallons per minute / 2.1 L per minute). Not sure whether this is good or not. Please let me know if I should use it or tuck IT.
    I have not started yet. Still doing some reading first before I make up my mind on what fishes to get. Although I do know that the once I like - prefer soft to slightly acidy water. Now I just have to figure which of the fishes is compatable. Any advice. O and pardon my spelling. I'm Afrikaans speaking - and that does not mean my Afrikaans spelling is any better. Maybe its the blonde hair. But just give this blonde some good advice and some time and she'll have a awsome tank in the new future.

    Welcom to TASA.

    The filter (rated for 200L tanks) you have is too small for your tank (+/- 400L). Consider getting an external filter - perhaps an eheim 2250 which does 1200L an hour. You can keep the BioLife and house the heater in there and it will provide extra or specific filtration depending on the filter media you use. Then again if the fish you keep have a low bioload, the BioLife might do the job. Perhaps tell us more about the species you intend purchasing and then we can give more detailed advice.
