My wife and I weren't planning to have a planted tank given the size of the tank we have bought & being new to freshwater fish. Our next tank will possibly be larger and we may go down the planted tank route.
One question I do have, is that the surface of the tank at the glass seems to have small bubbles forming. The number of bubbles have grown over the last few days, and I'm wondering if I should remove them or not. I saw a website mentioning that it may be a bio-film.
More likely these are from the filter or from the tap water following a water change or new setup. A photo would help.
No mention is made of intended fish, but I would point out that most do better with plants. Plants can be simple; as long as you have a decent tank light (fluorescent tube of screw-in CFL bulbs) plants are easy, easier than fish. Their effect on the water stability is amazing.
We have fish and plant profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. Data on minimum tank size, number of fish for each species (some are shoaling and need a group), water parameters, etc. is included, along with one or more photos.
