First tank

Hey everyone. I am a beginner here, but am looking forward to continuing to grow in this hobby.

I am an Army combat veteran and suffer from severe PTSD. So far I have found that having the tank is a big help and an easy way for me to calm down when I have had a bad day. It is easy to shut out the rest of the world and just work on the tank, or sit and watch them play.

I currently have a 30 Gallon Tropical Aquarium. My current stock is

4 Zebra Danio's
Dalmatian Mollie
Red Gold Tuxedo Guppy
Neon Green Tetra
Red Belly X-Ray Tetra
2 Otocinclus
2 Cardinal Tetras
2 African Dwarf Frogs

My tank is about 3 months old now and so far I have not lost a single fish. I started out slowly and made sure to have a full cycle and good water levels before adding the first fish. My first occupants were the Zebra Danio's, as I understood they would help further balance out the tank. I have added the additional stock slowly over the last couple months, adding at most 3 at a time.

It looks like there is a wealth of knowledge on this site and I look forward to everyone's advice and knowledge in the future.
