Red face Hello to all

Hi, just a quick hello from Somerset, Uk. My son has just received a tank and two orandas as a first pet gift and, having just done our second 50% water change (and then realising I may have added stresszyme instead of stresscoat) I thought I look for a forum where those more experienced could assist me in not killin my lads fish! So fingers crossed for me, my lad tyler and our new friends 'goldie and sparkle ' - may we still be together in 3mths time!
