I have guppies platties and zebra danios. I want to get penguin tetras eventually.
Im from uk so any help on where to get these plants etc would help as i dont really want to go pets at home anymore, as their information is normally wrong as ive found out as i learn more.

Resin comes in a bag, you add it to your filter. Simple as, but you must monitor it. When you detect no3
, remove resin, recharge following advice from manufacture, normally soaked and filtered through salt water.
(Get a book on plants) most of the things you will need to know can be found in a good old fashioned book, that's how I learnt. Then for actual care, ask for help wherever you can and look for the same answer repeated by different sources, that's the true bit you need. Its handy to have info on site, and easily available.
