What’s your advice for new­com­ers to the hobby?

Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - Tank Community -

Take the hobby se­ri­ously. Fishes are an­i­mals you need to re­spect, not part of your fur­ni­ture. Save money. In­su­late your aquaria. Easy to do and money-sav­ing. Save time. Make wa­ter changes as easy as pos­si­ble. I in­stalled a com­pletely au­to­mated wa­ter change sys­tem. It is a dou­ble sys­tem with a re­verse os­mo­sis unit and a tap­wa­ter unit. It ends up with drip­pers in ev­ery aquarium. They can be reg­u­lated in­di­vid­u­ally so I can ad­just wa­ter qual­ity. Right now I just need to sit down in my ‘man cave’ and en­joy. It only takes me a few hours a month to keep my tanks healthy. Things I wish I’d known. How ad­dic­tive it is — I’d have started ear­lier!
