    Hello All Members
    I have just joined MASA and want to say hello to all of you.
    I am new to keeping an aquarium which is now in its 4th week. No fish yet. I have no idea which is good or bad algae and struggle to get the info on the internet, possibly due to looking at the wrong sites. I hope to gain valuable info from this site. Keep well.

    Hello And Welcome

    Yes, best place on earth to get info.
    Your tank is still cycling that is why you got algae. Let it be another 2 or 3 weeks and you should start seeing improvements.

    Yes, wait with the live stock. At the moment it will just die easier.

    Welcome Antionette, great that you joined us. Here you'll learn everything, at no charge :p
    Please read the link in my signature - there might be some valuable info you need or missed.
    Post some pics of your tank and filtration, there might be something you wanna change depending on your setup and the advice from the guys. If so, rather do it in the early stages.
