Not quite aquascaping. But my planted tank

I am getting the hang of all this aquarium stuff now. I have a 125l tank nicely cycled with 0's across the board. I am now starting to enjoy it soo much. I have added new plants today and 3 new rummy nose tetras. I now have

1 x pleco
1 x albino cory (friends died during cycling)
3x guppy
3 x platy
5 x rummy nose tetra


Do you think it will be okay to get one or two more corys in this size. Or is this enough as I have one on its own now.

What kind of filter is that on the side a U2? that's a funky looking thermometer. The plants look great.

what kind of plants did you add? A couple look as if they could be non-aquatic.

Your tank looks nice!

But I do agree, some look non-aquatic. Sort of like the really big green leafy one in the second picture.

Nice tank, I also agree that you need to look into what plants are in the tank to see if they are truly aquatic.

In the second pic is java moss and a fake wood piece with fake leaves, limnophilia sessiliflora and the eleocharis parvula. Are they ok?

Nice plants! I really don't know anything about plants, so I can't help you with that, sorry.

One thing I have noticed is on your amazon swords plants some stems are missing leaves these plants can not re grow or fix there leaves you have to break them off as close to the roots as you can, nice looking tank by the way

I put plant gro every so often into my tank I have a 20 gallon with 1 fluorescent bulb, I also monitor the cheleated iron levels with a test kit.

I know people will also supplement cO2 as there are kits and DIY ways to do this.
