Stock:
1 Flame Gourami
2 serpae tetras
3 lemon tetras
3 cardinal tetras
2 bleeding heart tetras
1 BN pleco
2 cory cats
4 amano shrimp
Plants:
1 Cyprus plant
1 moneywort
2 anachris
2 pennywort
It is a work in progress and still have a lot to do aquascaping
this is my first tank hope you like it. Suggestions are welcome
Suggestions:

1:Anacharis to the back.
2:return either the lemons or the serapes (I'd return the serpaes, they're kinda mean IMO)
2a:boost your Lemon school up to 6-8ish
3: I wouldn't keep both cardinals and bleeding hearts. Return the bleeding hearts and boost the cardinals to 6-8ish
4: figure out what type of Cory cats you have and boost their colony to 5-6.

Every fish you have multiples of is a schooling / shoaling fish. If you keep them mismatched they'll never show you their true colors.
