    Welcome divan! Ask ask & ask as much as you can! Its the only way to learn.
    Also, if you are looking to buy a specific piece of equipment / tank, start a thread to get some input on the item. It helps you buy the right stuff first time around!
    This is an expensive hobby, & it gets ridiculously expensive when you buy the wrong stuff.

    Welcome man

    Nice size for a start there.
    If all goes well and you like the hobby (wich i beleive you will) then you be upgrading soon.

    Im not saying you must not buy that setup. Depending on price and what you getting with, ill say its a nice size.

    My first tank was 1.2m x 500 x 550 (second hand)
    Then i got an extra 1.2m x 450 x 450 (second hand)
    Then we built a nice 1.6 x 450 x 450 (all new glass, with 500 of the 1.6 being filtration)
    Then my bigest glass money box yet, 1.7 x 800 x 600 and im loving it.:thumbup:

    Good luck man
    Best hobby ever
