hi adrian, welcome to AA.

fishkeeping is a great hobby, not as easy as people think, but you've come to the right place for tips and advice.

a good place to start would be learning about is how to cycle your fishtank and 'new tank syndrome'. that's the key to success when setting up a new tank.

here's a link to get you started: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...es-154837.html

after that you can start researching the fish you are interested in keeping, to see if they are suitable for your tank size and compatible to live together.

good luck
