Newbie has lots to learn

Hi all

I'm new to the forum. I have had a 180L tank for two years now. I know some basics of fish keeping i.e. to cycle the tank, do weekly water changes, and regularly test for ammonia, nitrates, nitrites and PH.

I still have so many questions though and so much to learn. I have had a few fish deaths (an angelfish to unknown causes) and a kissing gourami to a bacterial infection. I was really sad to lose both. I do have other fish that have thrived though, like some loaches, a red tail shark, platys, and a bristle nose pleco.

Hopefully I can learn more so that my current fish have a long and happy life and maybe I can even add some new fish.

Thanks and talk to you soon
