Red face Hello from Tampa

Hello all!

I have had a 5 gallon hex aquarium for a while now and am seriously interested in figuring out what to do with it. I want to figure out what I should and should not put in the tank and the best way to maintain the lifespan of my fish. Once I get the hang of the 5 gallon I hope to move on to bigger and better tanks. I currently have a clown pleco (~2"), neon danio, an orange platy, and a ton of cork-screw snails in my tank. I sprung for the better bulb (halogen with half blue and half white light). There are also 2 live plants growing in the tank.

If you have an idea of where I should begin to make my aquarium a success (on this site or others) please let me know.

in need of advice!!!

Thanks!
T from Tampa
