    Hi Olivier, tell us more about your tank, the size of your tank, your sump, lights and what you planning to keep. Post us some pic of your tank and sump. Give your tank time to cycle 6 weeks before adding any fish. Post your pic of your set up and the old people thats still asleep will ask you some question and give you great advice.

    Hi Olivier, and welcome to MASA.

    For advice to be given, we would need a bit more info on your system :blush:

    One piece of "non-system related" advice one can give, would be to be patient... VERY patient.
    By taking things slow, and not overreacting to problems, could save you plenty of moolah and dissapointment.
    Learn from other's mistakes. No need to re-invent the wheel
    Plan thorroughly - Do your homework and read as much as possible, whether it be changing lights, adding inhabitants, changing filter media etc.
    When in doubt, ASK!!! You may get the odd / funny answer, but in general, this is a very helpful / assisting community.
    Meet people - Go to meetings. That is a central, one stop, wealth of information sharing. It also helps to build a support system when you need urgent help at 1am. Rather phone a friend than quit on the hobby :)
    Hope you stay with us long enough to upgrade at least twice... just for the fun of it / appreciation of the hobby..
