What are the most important topics?

I'm trying to write up a collection/summary of topics that will make it easier for people to get a good understanding of the basics. Things like cycling, tank size, filtration and the nitrogen cycle,...

What are the sort of topics you would have liked to hear about before you started?

1. Cycling.
2. Research.
3. More Research.

In an age of information and the power of Google and Youtube, the Pan-ultimate advice that can be given is "Look (it up) before you leap."

And "If you think you've learned enough - learn some more."

1. Cycling (natural and inexpensive methods)

2. Species requirements

3. Equipment (including tanks, test kits, filters, heaters, etc.)

4. Most important: RESEARCH PRIOR TO PURCHASE

I agree! Research can change everything for the better! If you research everything, there is a much larger chance things will go your way and you will be happy with the end result!

I fully agree. I do understand though how hard it is to wrap your head around fishkeeping as a beginner, that's why I'm trying to write a comprehensive guide inclusive links to websites that offer good information, calculators, databases of fish and alike.
