First time fish keeper

Hi everyone. I've never kept fish before or even been in the same house as fish until a few months ago. I inherited a fish tank from someone. So I have one tank with a few female bettas and some cory cats. And yes it does have live plants. Would that count as a planter tank?

Pretty much all my knowledge of fish came from the previous owner and the fish keeping books at the library (all two of them)

I don't have any goals for my fishkeeping right now. My only priority at the moment is keeping the tank alive and clean.

sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
