About Yourself: Brand new in the hobby, but have several friends who know the hobby, and have helped me out. Thanks for looking!
Fish Kept: 3 Bolivian Rams, 3 Apistogramma Cacatuoides, 5 Asstd Platys, 5 Otocinclus, 4 Peppered Corys, 1 Cardinal Tetra, 2 Bamboo shrimp, 15 Ghost shrimp, , Believe it or not, everyone gets along 110%. I thought I would lose a few ghost shrimp, but they have not been touched., , I'm at maximum capacity, so I do 25% water changes/vacuuming every 1.5 weeks., , Feed: Flake and NLS Cichlid Formula, and freeze-dried brine shrimp every few days.
Corals/Plants: All plastic and silk. A combination of Sea Garden, Tetra Water Wonders, and Penn Plax plants.<br> <br> I use Malaysian driftwood, which really accentuates the tank.
Tank Size: 72 gallons
Advice: Research!!! My tank is relatively young, and I learned from my mistakes. Until my tank was properly cycled, I did unfortunately lose a couple platys and tetras. Now, I am correctly cycled, and everyone inside is happy.

Advice: Have good filtration and 10 hours of good powerful lighting. dont forget to add plenty of live plants to help the natural cycle and add some oxygen. I like buying the plant bulb packs for around 5 bucks you get 4-8 bulbs. they usually work pretty good.
