Quick intro

A quick hello from ireland. New to tropical fish but have always kept goldfish. Recently acquired a 125l tank which is currently going through its cycle. water seems to be very clean considering our tap water. havent tested it yet though. hope to get the kit in the next couple of days. I was thinking of stocking it with 5 or 6 cherry barbs to start with. wanted to add few danios maybe then. Also neon tetras and a couple of emerald catfish. what does anyone think. would love some help and advice

Welcome to AA. That sounds like a good start. Maybe add a few low light plants? I like the emerald cats, try to get around 4 or 5 of them.
