I tested it last night with a basic test kit. Ammonia was clear yellow. Ph was deep blue so I'm guessing around 7 even though angels are the fattest and most active fish in the tank. Nitrate was a light light blue. I can test it again after work and get exact numbers for you

If that equates with your tap water, you have good options as it could easily be slightly lowered (via biological processes in the tank) so good for the soft water fish idea, or raised with calcareous for the basic water idea.

Can't see the "eel" fish you mentioned earlier on. The plant I suspect is not a true aquatic (some stores are bad for selling terrestrial plants as aquarium plants), it will last for a while but probably start to decompose after a few weeks/months. Looks like a Dracanea species. Keep an eye on it.

Now for good things. I do like that gravel; I've used something similar only more black/grey in my recently set-up 70g which I am doing as a SE Asian stream for rasbora, smaller barbs and loaches. If I may offer an idea? That tank, with that substrate and live plants (we'll help you get there) would be fantastic as a river scape, for either the rainbows or the congo tetra, or both. Ideally suited.

The videos are supposed to pick up in quality soon. And thanks! I had the tanks going nice and slow before i was "gifted" all these fish XD. I was going for more of a river scene and I was kinda basing everything around my angels

wouldn't it be nice if everyone lived close enough to do fish trades? I have on more then one occasion wanted to "gift a fish" or two to someone with a more appropriate tank for it. Your poor little Neon Tetra is swimming along thinking "please don't eat me, please don't eat me."

I know I have just recently seen that eel fish in one of the profiles I have been reading. I have been reading so many that I lost track and can't keep them apart. I am thinking it is some kind of loach and not an eel at all. I could be way off base though. I am sure someone with a lot more knowledge then I will chime in soon.
