About Yourself: I've been into freshwater aquariums since I was a teenager, but I left the hobby for a long time. I have recently taken it up again and glad I did.
Fish Kept: Currently: 16 zebra danios 7 platys 7 bronze corydoras 2 kuhli loaches 2 golden chinese algae eaters 3 oto cats
Corals/Plants: Java fern, Anubias, Vallisneria, and I can't remember the scientific names of the rest...Sorry
Tank Size: 24 gallons
Advice: Use ADA Amazonia Soil and a lot of it. Would recommend at least 3-4" deep to allow optimal root growth. Don't need to use Co2 if you use good lighting, would recommend 1 watt per liter. This is where I fell short, but my plants still managed to thrive.
