    Good morning to all..

    I am Dieter from pta and recently started the tropical aquarium hobby..
    I would like to gain some advice and knowledge through the forum as i am not very experienced in this regard..

    I am planning on obtaining a larger tank and would then be needing even more advice regarding equipment and setups.

    Cheers

    Dieter
