I must be doing something wrong, I've never changed water, just added when low.
What he means by established, atleast from my point of view, is to give it time for the healthy bacteria to build onto the filter. The more surface area those filters are, the more bacteria can colonize on to them. You can also skip buying filter replacements, and simply use a sizeable sponge (filter) in its place. The black carbon which does need replacing, and is an optional addon to help with any smells ( and a strong smell usually means a dead fish) or cloudiness--when you need it for that purpose. Believe it or not, most of these pet store fishes are pretty hardy. Even the rocks you use for the substrate become home for good bacteria. Other than that, you are correct, just vac their fish poop, top off the water, add a little bit of water conditioner and with the appropriate heater and filter, you will be set.

Quote from harleybogey :
I can only speak to freshwater tropical fish but the main thing I see people doing is adding fish to the tank before the tank has had time to become established. Doing that always kills the fish because the ammonia, nitrates and nitrates have not normalized. Once the tank is established you should be fine with regular water changes.
Well, technically you can cycle with fish in the tank but it does take more work and supplies. First you need something that will detoxify ammonia and nitrites like Seachem Prime. Then you need something that will add a bunch of beneficial bacteria more quickly. Then you need to test and check for ammonia spikes + may need to do water changes more often (weekly) while keeping a lower stock of fish to start with.

Do they refurbish them? I'll wait for that deal.
Wouldn't be surprised if they did, with all the marine biology graduates working there.

Ever since the incident of '06, they don't; too many liabilities. However, there is a decent amount that are seller refurbished on eBay. I'd be happy to point you towards a reputable seller that knows what they're doing, if interested.

Fair warning though, if it's domestic, goldfish parts are mostly universal and used for many replacements. I'd be skeptical if it's refurbished foreign or exotic, since most parts are special order and typically cost just as much as buying one new (if not more).

The 39 gallon is the best size and deal here IMHO. It sits at about eye level for most stands (when sitting)and is small enough for one person to install and manage. The 40 gallon is good also but is shorter. 39 looks better for display purposes I think.

I'd buy one if I knew anything about maintaining fish. With my luck they'd be dead after a day of bringing them home. 🥴
As a relatively new fish owner (1 Beta), i can try and summarize the basics. Water temp matters, keeping the water clean is important, and using chlorine free water is critical. also 1-2 fish per 10 gallons, i think. the fish need space. note: my one beta creates a lot of waste and dirties my 10 gal tank pretty fast, so be conservative with the amount of fish in the tank.

Quote from ImNotBob :
Looks like the biggest tank they sell is 75gal for $105. Shame they don't carry larger tanks cause I would buy one that is over 100 gallons.

A LFS carries bigger tanks over 100 gallons, but those are $400 from them. I've also been looking at used tanks, but most of them are under 40 gals.
Hey bob. If you're looking for a good tank it may be good to know that the tanks your LFS has is likely much higher quality than the one at Petco or petsmart. Even the same brands may have serious quality differences when bought from your LFS. Look for black silicone on the seals.

When you can, always support your LFS.

I'm a saltwater guy but this is a fine tank for quarantine
