    Hi to all!

    I'm a beginner and just bought my first 37l Aqaria tank.
    Had it now for about a month and still learning alot.
    Have lots of questions but will get around to it later.

    If anybody has the same tank and can give me advice please let me know!

    Have lots of questions about the skimmer!

    welcome to masa great to have you join:)

    if you are adding water, especially to a small vollume tank, its best to have it at tank temp before its added. I always try mix my water the day before, place a heater in the bucket and let it warm up. Granted i am in a cold country and i mix bigger vollumes of water, but i suggest you do the same.

    When you mix there is often undisolved salt at the bottom of the bucket, so stir the bucket and always check the SG BEFORE you add it to tank, its very important!
