Smile Hi, new aquarium owner =}

Hi,

On a impulse i went out and brought a 105 L Jebo R 362 tank.
I new to this hobby and would really appreciate some advice.

I currently have a heater set at 27 degrees celcius, the tank has a built in filter.

I brought one large ornament that is a cliff side with artificial palm trees on it, the ornament also is hollow so the fish can 'explore' it.

I brought 10 neon tetras, 2 angels, 1 kissing fish and 4 platties.
I treated the tank with stress coat and stress zyme.
I waited about 48 hrs before i added the fish to the tank.
I'm thinking of getting a 20l tank incase any of the fish contract a disease?
Should i get live plants for my tank?

Welcome Aboard!

First thing I'd suggest is to read the link below to help you get your tank cycled. I'd also suggest you look into getting a liquid test kit like the API FW Master test kit.

I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
