    Are you planning on keeping all those species? And on what scale is that water hardness? Are you using test strips? Growing a lawn of hair grass is actually not that easy, would require a high light, high energy tank.

    I will eventually hopefully have all those species

    I took the water to pet smart locally and they did the test in the back and came and gave me the results so not sure but i will get a test kit when I get my pump and start cycling

    when I build my hood I will have a lot of light in there for my plants

    I would strongly suggest not falling for the beginner's pitfall of having too many species. Instead go for fewer and in higher numbers.

    Joe, good start to your journal.

    You actually have 13 different species listed (look at the scientific names, if they're different, it's a separate species), which is way too many. Except for the frog (which should not be in a tropical fish tank) and pleco, these are schooling fish and you need at least 6 of each species, with certain ones needing even more than that in their school for the fish to be healthy and happy. Also, with that many species, your tank will not look good. Decrease you number of species to 4 (plus the pleco) and increase the number of fish in each school and you will have a great looking tank. There is nothing more stunning than a large school of one species of fish.

    why not the frog I have had them before and they do great in the aquarium? they are tropical and live their entire lives in the water plus they cool to watch hehehe

    ok i know they had dif names but figured a Cory was a Cory a Hatchet a Hatchet etc that they all would get along and be happy

    I will narrow it down when it comes time for fish will see what we end up getting for starter fish and then go from there
