Advice:I started with 6 neon tetras and found out this was wrong for my tank.
2 huge mistakes -
1. Coral Sand creates hard water that neons do not like.
2. The neons get their heads stuck in the little holes in the Texas Holey Rock and die (I didn't see that one coming).

About Yourself:I am currently in my senior year studying Environmental Policy at Rutgers University. I was introduced to the hobby at a very young age and have kept aquariums since 10 years old. I have owned saltwater and freshwater aquariums but have recently stuck to only freshwater because of my low income. I have kept this African Cichlid tank for about 5 years now and I am very proud of it. Hope you like it as well!
