Done a bit more research last night and went to the web site Email Marketing Solutions and On-Demand Software from Topica downloaded there app to help with tank maintenance looks good and helpful. It's suggesting a 50% water change tomorrow and to get some shrimp initially 1 for every 5ltr.

Will ask the wife to get some today otherwise it'll be Monday.

Also read a bit on CO2 levels, looks like I may need to add some to help with the plants I have selected, if I'm reading the chart right will not need much. Next to decide on the delivery method.

Shhhh!! Don't tell the wife more expense.

Just noticed my typo should have been Tropica Aquarium Plants

I don't suppose a mod could change the original post?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra

something seeded for you next filter.
