This was my first planted tank. I have had over 10 plus tanks in the last 7 or so years. I was really into bettas for a while and had 5 plus tanks going at the same time with the almond leafs and weekly water changes. So i feel im pretty good on how to keep tanks thriving. Just started a planted tank since november. Luckily for me i had a friend give me advice on how to keep a planted tank including algae, co2, weekly water changes 25-50%, ph gh kh, what fish to keep in a tank, shrimps, soft/hardwater plants. So i think im okay on how to keep fish in a tank. But thank you for your concern. Like i said before im just interested in seeing different types of fish and want to expand my knowledge on types of fish.
