New to aquariums - Freshwater

Joined this forum to find out more about keeping fw fish. Being of asian descent, i've always been fond of your regular goldfish.

Bought a 46 gallon bow front tank, did not know about a fishless cycle until after everything, tank was overstocked with 25 small goldfish, and i'm down to 9 now, i started the tank off with bacterial supplements for a few days before starting the fishes.

But this forum has helped me a lot and i understand that i will need to upgrade my tank very shortly to keep up with these fishes!. Running a fluval 406 and a aquaclear 110 on my tank, overkill for sure.

Good reading on this forum! thanks!

Welcome to the forum! I am glad it has helped you!
Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
