New tank person

I everyone! I am a beginner at aquariums so bare with me! I have a 12 gallon tank and have fish in there already (it's been going for 3 weeks now). I wanted to know what places I could get cleaning supplies, heaters, and bubblers and which types. Post pictures of what you guys think is helpful/useful if possible!

I go to www.bigalspets.com for all of my aquarium shopping.

What fish do you have in this tank? How often do you do water changes?

Almost everything I have was from Amazon (check reviews), and some from PetSmart. Welcome!

I have two fancy guppies, two 2 inch fish (don't know name) and 3 neon small .5 inch tetras. I do water changes every week.

First one is a Flame Gourami , second is a dwarf Gourami!

Im not an expert on stocking, but i would re home one gourami, and get a few more neon tetras (i think thats the small tetra you mentioned) they are schooling fish and like a group of 6+

And as for your guppies, I'm guessing they are both male? (They would have super bright colors, and if you google male guppy and female guppy you can see the difference, males have a pointed bottom fin, and females have a fanned bottom fin) if they are both male, they will probably fight. If this gets too much for one or both to take, i would consider some females to keep them occupied.

I hope this helps!

On the tag at the store, it said those exact fish (tetras) don't school. 3 is a great number it said! I'm not even joking!!!! Also the guppies aren't fighting from my observations.TRUST ME. I have been seriously observing them and they are so peaceful! They swim by each other and don't do anything... I'm curious why I should move one of the g fish(forgot!) plus I don't have another tank! Oh help me!
