Hi, before you think about stocking your aquarium make sure you cycle it first, it's worth the effort or you could kill off all the fish introduced into an uncycled tank take some time and read this first: please don't take offence at the title lol!!.

Fishless Cycling For Dummies

when your tank is cycled get some easy to keep species like Zebra Danios,and maybe some livebearers, swordtails, platies, guppies, endlers etc. I'm sure some more experienced members will be along soon to give you some great advice. Good luck with your fishkeeping.

Pete

Hi and welcome to AA. Pete is right. Read up on the nitrogen cycle first.

You and any future resident of your tank will be thankful for your efforts

Hey welcome to AA As you can clearly tell, everyone on here is super friendly and willing to help Be sure to post a new build thread as you start your tank up Including pictures is always nice, we love looking at them
As everyones saying, fishless cycling is the most humane way to go about (Lots of us have done the fish-in cycle simply because we had no knowledge until now) But fishless is highly recommended, its great that your planning ahead It will take time for the cycle but it'll be worth it

It's really not all that difficult to cycle a tank. If your nervous, we can walk you through it. There are lots if experienced fish keepers on here that have done this again and again, and are happy to help!
