I guess the real problem is I haven't had much luck fish wise. There is a nice piece of driftwood in there covered by plants. So the next step is to probably start testing my water and I would like to clean the gravel but my self start siphon is difficult to use around the plants. I also have lots of cherry shrimp. Is there a recommended way to clean the substrate?
Also, I will likely upgrade my filtration, as of now it's running on a Aqua Clear 20 filled only with sponges and bio media.
Some more lurking and I should find the answers around here I'm sure
