So I'm redoing my 55gal. Stocking lots of fish and adding lots of plants!
15 neon tetras
2 groups of Java Fern
1 big Anubias
some arrowhead stuff
and some other plants I don't know

And yesterday my little sister and I got a crowntail betta at walmart. Mom said she could get one and I helped her pick it out... We ended up getting a really cute little guy (luckily the fish were semi-healthy, our walmart isn't supposed to get fish and sometimes they randomly do. When they do no one takes care of them. At all
... Most die
Anyways he's in my 55gal for now, possibly to stay. The alternative is a 1.5 gallon bowl... No heater, even though he would get regular water changes. So hopefully he does ok in here.
Here's pics of him, though they don't do him justice at ALL. He shimmers between a black color and a fluorescent blue or something when he swims, pretty awesome looking really.
My filter is a Penguin 280 Biowheel.
Water parameters are 77F, 7.0-7.2pH, and on the soft side. I have officially ordered some Malaysian Driftwood and Flourish Comprehensive supplement from Dr. Foster and Smith and will be getting some plants and Rosy Barbs from my lfs tomorrow
I'm also getting some Amazon Frogbit
Many thanks to Byron and all the others who have helped me with planning what I'm going to do and generally just figuring a lot of stuff out.
I'm thinking that Imma get some red eye tetras and various corydoras cats after the rosy barbs are settled in, getting the other tetras next week and the corydoras a few weeks after that if all goes well.
I'm also getting various plants, we'll see how they do.
