Hi everyone!

Hello! I'm new here (obviously )
My fiancé and I have wanted fish for a while and decided to get a tank at Christmas. We are now completely and utterly hooked we could do with lots of advice now though, and this site is fantastic!
Looking forward to many posts!

Aw! How exciting! What fish are you adding? We've got seven fish at the moment, but added them before learning about cycling. Oops :/ looking forward to talking to everyone on here
Thanks for replying Tomasz? That's Polish isn't it?
Is this your first tank or have you had them before?
Sasha

Nu da privet Alexandr I hope I have not mistaken the diminitions Yup 'tis polish version of ye Irish Tomas And yup I am Polish...
Welll.. I have not forgotten about cycling while it is not my first tank at all but first in last 10 yrs...
On satturday my wife and I are going tointroduce at first:
Ancistrus temminckii, the Bristlenose pleco with care, maintenance requirements and breeding information for your tropical fish

Then week later, while we have already ordered them:
Fairy Cichlid, Neolamprologus brichardi Profile, with care, maintenance requirements and breeding information for your tropical fish - family of 9

and

Discus Cichlid Profile, with care, maintenance requirements and breeding information for your tropical fish - after 2 days

As you can notice there hardly is an overlap in pH and dH parameters. However successful keeping of both is possible (however tricky) as I have done this before. I shall have to replace 1/3rd of water in the tank with distilled water than reduce acidity by 0.7 in two days (0.35 per day

With my best wishes
Tomasz & Barbara
