What do you think?

I was thinking bout adding hardy fish so it can add the good bacteria needed in the tank... I don't know if that's smart or just a rookie wreck...

A fish doesn't add good bacteria. All it does is serve as a source of ammonia to feed the good bacteria. Please read the posted links & ask any questions you may have!
