Another "My First Tank" Post

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the hobby and this is my first tank. It's a 16 Gallon Bow Front with 6 Serpae Tetra, 3 Rummy Nose Tetra and 1 Marimo Moss Ball. Eventually I'll get some real plants in there, but for now they are plastic. Tell me what you think, plus any ideas for a couple of tank mates.

Wow, that's a fairly impressive shot. Good luck with your tank. It must be very fun to look at.

Hi. Your tank is awesome. Tell me how you took the picture to get the color and depth correct. I try and every time I try the picture looks pinkish and doesn't show the beauty of the actual tank.

Yeah, that's a nice photo. Can you tell me how you got such a clear shot. I have little luck with it. I keep getting a glare from the flash or the fish look blurry. You have a nice tank.
