New planted tank, family aquarium

Hello all,
I'm a mom of 2 little boys, the oldest is very into science and nature. So in honor of his 6th birthday we set up a 29 gallon planted tank. We've had it for about 5 weeks and all is going well. It's a community tank of zebra danios, sunset platys, cory cats and amano shrimp. We're hoping to add a few guppies soon, but we're holding off because it seems as though 2 of our platys are very pregnant. We've had 2 successful shrimp molts, and the shrimp are high on our list of favorites to observe.

I'm hoping to learn more about the hobby and have a place to go when I have questions or concerns.

Here's a photo of our tank!

Great tank and welcome
