hello, i am starting a new tank and would like some general advice.
I am going NO c02.
92(ish) gallons
H*W*L (in inches)
Fluval fish and plant 2.0
finnex stingray

2 hydro III sponge filters with tetra whisper 100 gal air pump

substrate is just black sand mixed in with crushed coral (was recommended this for my guppies)

I do have an auto doser but would prefer to start off by root tabs to get my carpet started. I was recommended to use micro sword.

I have soft water:
GH 75
low alkaline
neutral ph

stocking ideas

3 trios of bluegrass guppies
20 celestial peral danios
20 pygmy cory
1 panda garra
Any advice and thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

does anyone have any suggestions/advice plants?
