Aquarium Beginner's Guides

According to last month's poll, 83% of you wanted to see more beginner's guides. Now my question to you is, what kind of beginner's guides do you want to see? What do you need help with? What aspect of fish keeping or aquascaping mystifies you? I'm not going to put this into a poll only because I want some open ended answers; you can leave yours as a comment to this post! Hopefully I can get some good ideas and write some guides that are valuable to those starting out or those who just want a better understanding of the hobby.

  1. Maybe you could list the parts for a beginner, intermediate, advanced setup. Or a list of links to your favorite sites.

  2. I'd love to see different aquascaping layout techniques such as Iwagumi setup, Driftwood and plants and so on.

  3. Nice blog you have here. Good job! Perhaps you can share basic setup for beginner to start on. Something that even a newbie without any knowledge of aquascaping can refer, try and be proud of. Most of beginner prefer something that simple and cheap so they wont spend too much on something that they don't really need or can simply DIY at home.

  4. Very good ideas! I've been thinking about writing a step by step guide to setting up a basic planted tank on a budget, but that would entail actually setting up another tank and I've already got 3! Maybe I can do a step-by-step nano tank. We'll see, you've gotten the gears turning. Thanks!

  7. Please I want to know how to set up plants "step by step with a picture" started from the empty aquarium, so the plants will stick to the ground and will not float. Sorry for the bad English. Does it need soil, or just sand and gravel. Thank you very much.
