Hi Rod!

What kind of set up do you have?

Fresh/salt water?

Filtration?

Lighting?

Knowing. Those things helps a lot especially if you want live plants

Hi all

Seems like you got it pretty well set up just make sure to keep your plants fertilized and if the tank is new, your plants will look worse before they get better. Just keep cutting off dead leaves/stems and they will get going.

And yes pics!
