Hey all, I have a 15 gallon aquarium, I am starting over with fish (mine all died ) but the filter is still going to continue to feed the bio filter. there are also happy plants right now. currently trying to decide what types of fish to get, and looking for a good replacement filter since my current one is trying to die. (it's an aqua tech 5-15) My goal is that this time I will succeed at fish keeping.

Hi and welcome!
Do you know why all the fish died last time? You should address that before you get new ones.

They all died because of a major spike in ammonia levels.

Hello, and welcome to Aquarium Advice! Was the tank cycled?

The ammonia spike happened after 2 years of fish being in the tank. I'm still not sure what caused it. And since the last fish died, I've kept the filter going to make sure the bio filter continues to work.
