I just joined, and also live in Houston. Do you do use tap for your water changes? if so, what advice do you have on making it safe for the aquarium? Do you use a lot of chemcials? In your experience are there easier/harder fish to keep in the houston area? Thanks for any advice.

Welcome to aa. I live near Houston also (pasadena) and the tap here has ammonia in it. Use seachem prime to rid it of the ammonia and metals. That is really the only chemical needed. I keep Oscars and jacks but ime all fish will thrive no matter what as long as you do the regular water changes

thanks. I used prime as i'm waiting for tank to cycle. I really like mid/far east asian fish. Most of those prefer slightly acidic soft water, but with plants and driftwood, I'm hoping they will do ok.
