One other thing, The second picture from the bottom looks like an Anubias. This plant will die buried in the gravel like that.

Its best to attach it to a rock or some wood with a string. The Rhizome needs to be above the substrate.

It will help to know your water parameters (tap water). When you post new photos, mention the hardness (both GH and KH if you can, you can obtain these from your water suply people, many have a website) and pH. It will make it easier for us to make suggestions as to fish (and possibly plants).

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
