Talking what do you think of my fishtank so far?

Hi guys! this is my first time setting up a tank so I decided to keep it relatively small and went for a 35 ltr

It has been up an running for 2 weeks now and the plants seem to be doing okay I put in a plant substrate then the white gravel over the top

so I have been doing the basics like water changes the treatments I also have an airstone but I dont know how neccessary it is! :p

here it is!

what do you guys think so far? I have read so much online my brain just feels overloaded :p

do you think it is ready for fish and how many should i have? or should I wait atleast 4 weeks for it to cycle ?

There's an article on this forum on the basics on cycling the tank. Might want to read that and decide on which method you'd want to use. The tank is said to be cycled when it starts accumulating nitrates, and for that you'd have to do water tests. Looks like you have plants in the tank which help with cycling. For the benefit of others, a 35L is somewhat equivalent to a ten gallon tank.
