Going back to fresh water after a couple of years with salt. Donít have the time anymore for the maintenance.

Starting up a planted aquarium just done the hardscape landscape.

Mando natural substrate
Going to plant heavy, want to have ember and neon tetras and one or two centre piece fish.

Any suggestions?Click image for larger version

The tank's almost 70 gallons, so one male and 3-4 females? I wouldn't put in more than one male, even in a tank this size.
