Advice: Learn what cycling your tank is before adding fish! Research for compatible tankmates. Do not use test strips to check levels. Drop test are much better. Keep nitrates between 20-30 with weekly water changes. Over "mothering" your fish is no good either, because people tend to treat with too many medications. Believe me, I did it in the past. If your fish are healthy DO NOT change anything, no matter who tells you to change.

About Yourself: i'm a guy from malaysia basically started fish keeping since earlier 2007. how i started this hobby cause i think keeping fishes are quite relaxing when you watch them swim around, and another factor is that i've kept other pets like dogs, chipmunks, hamsters, birds, tortise, rabbits, so basically havent try fishes yet so this tank is my first tank. Been thru alot of trails and errors just to get it to the looks as it now, which is what i always wanted since i'd start this hobby . to have nice green real planted tank :) will move to bigger tank when i have enough money and space .. wish me luck
Fish Kept: erm.. Tetras, ramson snails, Red Crytals Shrimp (C), Red Cherry Shrimps, Otos, there are some more, but dont know the names :P
Corals/Plants: did try out 6-7 types including bottom land plants (dont know what it's name is) sorry i dont really know the names but so far my tank only have moss and the big leaf plant as you can see :) to me is the easiest way to keep a small thank neat and tidy.
Tank Size: 15 gallons
Advice: keep trying no matter how many "deaths" there were :P but do keep track on your spending budget
