Oh jesus. I'm on LHs side.
The facepalm is enormous.
YOU should do YOUR OWN research and know about what you are to buy.
If you have seen a fish you like, but haven't heard of, you shouldn't buy it. Or bring a smartphone.
This can't be analogized to the adoption of a baby. I can't go online and google "Adoption number 15208450283475 info" and get "A bit messy, very smart and interactive baby. This baby is up for adoption due to financial problems of the parents. Do not feed peas, or Gerber baby food for that matter.".
Sure, you could ask them for direction "Do you know of a fish that eats diatoms very well" and they point you to say, otos, but you need to do you research on otos, or better yet, diatoms.
Sorry for going on a small vent.
Thanks LH for the pic(copy saves).Its Phillip, not Origami.

Is it odd that I was looking for a like button after reading the initial post?
This is exactly why I did so much research on the internet while choosing what to put in my tank. I won't accept the first the I read as the correct answer either. I will read multiple articles and forums on a topic then assume majority rules.

Local Independent Stores
If you have a small pet store or fish store, try them first. I have a privately owned pet store where they sell LOTS of fish. I told the young lady there I was planning to buy some fish for my fish tank. She actually asked me lots of questions, what size tank, who will be taking care of the tank, am I cycling the tank etc. She also told me that when I'm ready to bring test samples to check out & some of the tank water so she could test it. Apparently this store will not sell you fish unless you prove to them the water is cycled & OKand that your tank will be big enough to handle the size and quantity of fish. Wow! That's what I call impressive. Petsmart and Petco will sell you anything no matter what.
The Mom and Pop stores are the way to go if possible.

Hi I'm new on this site. When I buy new fish is it safe to use the water that is in the bag with the new fish? Or should I just take the fish out of it?

jrbirdman92: it would be best to start your own thread to ask your questions.
Short answere: noIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
