Although I have had a tank (freshwater/35 gallons) in my office for over a decade, I have always had someone else set up and maintain it for me. The tank was last in Portland ME where a wonderful company create a beautiful planted tank for me. I moved it home months ago and as a result of my lack of knowledege my fish became sick and died. I would like to move it to my new office and start again. Until I can obtain the appropriate knowledge, I will need someone to help set it up and maintain it for me. I thought this would be the best place to ask for recommendations. Thanks in advance to all for suggestions.

It's not that hard to set up the tank if you have the time to do water changes. I find if you change 25-35% of the water weekly this will eliminate many problems. But if you don't have the time, you could contact Uncle Neds in Millis Ma or Aqua-Life in Providence (depending on your location). An easy way to start would be to put the plants in pots and get easy or less sensitive fish. When you moved the tank it could have been your office water and home water were very different.
