Hey ya,

I'm new to the fish world. I just finished with my fist tank. Wonder if I did anything wrong?

1 gallon tank (for my kid) 4 tyapical fish and 2 snails.

I laid the oyxgen tube in fist, buried it with crysal rocks then one small fake plant.

Then laid tthe fish in. Oyxgen blows out to one corner, this that ok?

NO gravel but rocks, is that ok also?

You need to get a real plant, the artificial ones are just for decoration, and real ones are not expensive. Your fish would apriciate it.

Well you don't need real plants but they can help you.

Overall it sounds like verything is ok besides the fact that you should have left the aquarium running a couple of weeks before adding the fish.

I recommend that you download and read my ebook. aquaticcommunity.com/ebook.html
