New Guy, New tank, new fish, new PITA

Sooooooo,

I came home from work the other day to find my girlfriend and I have just inherited a 30 (29?) gallon freshwater aquarium from her brother who decided he didn't want it in his new place.

Anyways, before I get home from I work, they have the tank in place, full of water and fish. Up until this point, he has been "winging it" as far as taking care of the tank, which really means adding fish occasionally to replace the ones that have died off.

Not wanting to buy new fish every few weeks, I came to the world wide web looking for a place where I can find a little help.

I'm sure there's a place to for a "I don't know what the F I'm doing" kinda guy, so I'll be looking to start a thread there soon.

If nothing else, I'll be entertaining someone....

Please pardon the muffled audio. My phone is in a case that muffles my voice.

Thanks a ton. Bought the test kit today and just finished a water change. Apparently what I've inherited is plenty of work!

Anybody care to help me identify what sort of fish I've got in there?

Anyone know what kind of plants those are?

You guys are a huge help!!

I'm planning on frequent tests and water changes for a while.
