    Smile Hello fish lovers! I'm new here!


    1 Not allowed!
    Cannot say I'm new to fish-have loved goldies for many years. Bought a sale 55gal tank 3 yrs ago and bough 5 tiny, fancies. Lost one acutely-no sign of illness about one year after the start...I had spent weeks getting the tank ready. The four I have left are very big-and I feel the need as well as having the desire, to set up a large tank-thinking 150gal. to give them and perhaps a few others a large happy space. They provide much relaxation for me and have great personalities. I want to do it right but can't find any instruction book. When I say 150gal, my home town shop-which I have patronized off and on for several decades-suggest salt. They are very nice but (my problem) I feel like a purchaser of a Honda in a Porsche dealership. I am interest in any suggestion as to how to set this up to make it a safe fish environment and one which doesn't require all my time. By this I mean-filter system which is easy to maintain and provides excellent control of wastes etc. Looking forward to any input. Thanks in advance ...

    Hello and welcome the AC!

    Filtration I would go with a
    Eheim Classic 2217 two if possible!
    http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...fm?pcatid=3603

    Both the Eheim's biomedia/mechanical media is top notch!

    Canisters are very efficient and trap almost all of your debris and detritus. And you simply rinse out your media about once a month in "treated" water or old tank water during your water change.

    Welcome to AC. Opening a new journal would be the best way to get questions answered. This is just where you say hello :


    BTW...can't wait to hear more about your goldfish and see them.
