new member here,near Brighton.

Hi,after a few years break I have just set up a new aquarium.
I have a 4ft RENA tank with an AQUA ONE Aquis 1200 external filter.
The tank is planted and the water has been treated with the bacteria and I plan to introduce some fish on Saturday.I will be setting it up as community tank with livebearers initially and maybe some more expensive fish when I am 100% happy that I can keep the water at the right levels.
My other hobbies are sea fishing and watching BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION.
Any advice will be gratefully received.
Thanks, Andy.

to AA! A fish in cycle is a lot of work at times but it can be done. Good luck

Welcome! As Andy stated a fish in cycle isn't easy but can be done. A lot of testing an water changes. You can get through it just keep testing and doing water changes. I got through it on my 55 Cichlid tank.

Good luck
