30 gallon tank

Hey everyone. Im kinda new to this whole fish tank exp. I have a 30 gal tank. In my 30 gal tank i have 1 german blue ram, 1 dwarf gourami, 3 guppies, 4 glow fish, 1 ghost shrimp, 4 serpae tetras, and 1 clown pleco. I have had my tank up and running for about 4 months now. I love the fish tank its so relaxing to watch. But i have a question. I like to switch to real planets. What the best way to do so? Should i go one at a time or all at once? Another question is do u think i have room for one more fish? I mean i did my math and came up with 28 gals use if u do 1 inch of fish to 1 gal.

Welcome to AA!!

I would make a post in the planted aquarium section about the plants. You'll get more responses there.

If you are going to add more fish, I would add to your schools that you already have. You could bump the Glo-fish and the Serpaes to 6-7 each. After that I think the tank is pretty well stocked.

Did you have something in mind that you wanted to add?
