No two aquariums are the same, no matter how much you try to duplicate one. Even with the same equipment, livestock, and maintenance habits, there is going to be some variable that sets the two apart. Because of this, advice based on one system doesn’t exactly fit for the other. So, when fellow hobbyists give you tips, keep in mind that the tip may or may not work, or if it does work, it may not have the same effect. For this reason, carefully consider anything advice that anyone gives. Think things through logically and give things a trial run before fully committing to a change.
