bischan here

Hi guys, New here.

I thought just buying a tank and a fish is enough to have an aquarium with fish swimming happily.

I was WRONG.
one by one my fish died because of lack of planning.

I was so happy when I first bought my fish.
a hammerhead, iceblue, rainbow shark and the auratus.

then now I only left with group of auratus in my tank.

That's when I realize that "fish + tank = aquarium" is not that simple, and that it requires a planning "Planning + tank + fish = aquarium".

Welcome! Here is an article for cycling if you already have fish. That is of course if you have not cycled already.
I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!
