Update. Decided to keep away from live plants for now. I'm realizing my first tank purchased was just that, a beginner tank. So My 2 platties are happy as are the 4 neons. Just added 2 Emerald Corys, all looks well as far as all the kids getting along. I added some more faux plants to give everyone a little hiding quiet time. I think this will be it as for adding any more fish. Gonna throw some ghost shrimp and a snail eventually...
