Newbie!

HI, my name is April, I am just starting an aquarium for the first time in my life I am very excited about it and I am hoping to get a nicely stocked tropical community going. I'm starting with black stripped tetras 2 short fin and 3 long fin, (the store gave me the wrong ones I wanted all long fin). I am planning on naming fish by schools/breeds I named these Proto...prototype. I had an issue with one of the long fins a day after I got them and got the water tested and it was "perfect" by the testing done by the store. so I got stress coat and it worked! I also have 3 moss balls and 6 ghost shrimp (but I can only find 3) one of the shrimp tried to jump down the sink when I opened the bag to put them in my tank, I got her in and she looks happy now. 2 of them are females with eggs (will they lay them and hatch??
I tried a red ludwiga but all the leaves started turning brown and falling off and the plant was not as bright in color so I took it out and saw that the roots were dark.
I have a 37gal top fin tank with a 40 top fin filter. I have gravel (black and neon) substrate and a few fake plants and a large coral with a bubbler going through it. the lighting is the white led lights that came with the tank. a 200w heater I have a floating thermometer and a strip one.

I don't know how to add a picture. or I would
HELLO EVERYONE
April

Yes I am planning on another school of fish this Wednesday. I am not sure which fish though. I do like the tetras but I want some more color in the tank. I will see what they have. I really want a plant that will live too. I have to return the red ludwiga that I got cuz the roots turned dark and the plant just did not look good. The moss balls are intriguing though!
