    Hi guys.

    I have a 3ft fresh water planted tank with some tetras. It has been running for several years.

    I have started a standard TL 550

    I hope to learn loads in the near future.

    Thanks

    hey welcome to MASA mate.. plenty to learn and plenty advise here.. just ask away and don't forget we are all photo junkies so don't be shy to post pictures as you progress with your tank

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. My TL550 is still cycling and is still stock standard.

    What would you recommend as good "upgrades" to make to a TL550?

    well the standard Skimmer is a good upgrade. I have also lost the lid on mine to use LED's but some guys have done DIY LED builds in the lids.
