Mine has a huge meltdown but do not be dismayed, keep trimming and they will come back.

This is my 75g planted. It has a majority of the plants I recommended. And a few others like Rotala, bacopa, and dwarf water lettuce.

OHH water sprite I've heard is really easy and one of those "indestructible plants". I got some on the way.

Hi Finn!
For your stock list, just some comments:
I thought white clouds liked cooler temps, may want to check on the compatability
Since you have the space, I would do at least six of the cory cats. They love hanging in big groups
For the rainbows I would also bump the number up if you plan to keep them, I believe 5 is the minimum recommendation. Some species are super active and can get a little bossy with each other, it's easier to spread out chasing with bigger numbers.
Good luck!

Some rainbows are also very voracious eaters. You may need to feed extra so the other fish get some.

I have checked out everything on aqadvice.com and I saw that about the rainbows I really would love a large nice center piece fish I thought about discus but i know they require a lot more care. Any suggestions?

Also I do know about the cooler water and I have the heater on the far side so one side is cooler. And do you know where I can find those plants?

I am breaking down the saltwater slowly and I need around $120 (I only have $16) to get the substrate so take your time.

Let me just say welcome to the forum The Idea is to help new fish people, make them feel welcome and not scare them off the forum. We all had to learn and somethings we learn by trial and error. Also there is no one perfect way. What works well for one fishkeeper may not work for another. There are too many variables, and they are all living creatures, not robots. I say keep studying the way you are and you will be an expert in no time, and meanwhile I think your doing well. I have kept fish on and off for 60 plus years and am still learning. Alison.
