This is a two minute video of our 29 gallon freshwater tank. The tank and most of its inhabitants were given to us. We added plants and a few more residents. I've gotten some help on what all of the fish are, I'm only unsure of the two biggest shark looking guys. The video says there's twenty fish, but I just moved one of the cory cats to the betta tank so in truth there are nineteen fish, two dwarf frogs, and three snails.
I've added the plants (bamboo being the most recent addition) a brighter light (10,000K, 17watt, T8, 24") and am experimenting with very small amounts of liquid co2
, and small amounts of fertilizer tablets placed in the substrate (gravel and sand mixture).
I've been watching my chemical levels and all seems well. We got the tank from a family member who had been "winging it" which really meant he was buying new fish often. I've been doing a sizeable pwc
every few days. We didn't get any of his old filter media so I'm not certain if my cycle is set up with whatever bacteria survived the move on the substrate and few decoration pieces.
Anyways, I'm wide open to comments, criticism, and advice so let it fly.
I have been keeping an eye on my angel fish as I'm told the tiger barbs will likely not get along with them.

Here's a list of my fish (I think):
Two unknown sharkish looking guys, the largest fish in the tank
Two angel fish
Three Cory Cats (two albino)
Six Tiger Barbs (one is easily identified as the outcast, having suffered some past attacks)
Two African Dwarf Frogs
Three Snails (Spiral I think?)
