Newbie from Columbus OH

I'm brand new in the freshwater aquarium world. I just hope I can have some success starting out. I got a fluval chi 5 gallon tank. I just got it two days ago I have no fish or plants yet, I will soon. I want to get a few ferns and some moss. I would like to know what some good starter plants might be. I want to also get some blueberry shrimps to start. Ultimately I want to get a few glofish for my tank. I'm a total newbie, I'm diving into this solo so any help I can get is very welcome. Cheers!

Welcome! You're in the right place. You should read up on cycling your new tank before you buy any fish or shrimp. I believe a tank should be well established before you get shrimp, but their are plenty of shrimp people here who know better than me. Good luck and have fun!
