Hi!!

Hi, this is my first attempt at a planted tank. I do not have much experience as an aquarist and hope to learn alot from this forum. My previous experience with freshwater would be having neon tetras and guppies years ago when I was a kid, obviously I had no idea about water chemistry so it was not successful. My current setup is as follows:

8 gallon heavily planted Oceanic biocube.

red dwarf rasboras (boraras merah)
Weitzmani tetras
crystal red shrimp
scarlet badis
amano shrimp.

Hope to learn more about fishkeeping from you guys!!
