Welcome to the forum, bubble87. We're glad you decided to get back into the hobby and join us.
What are your eventual stocking plans? Your tank looks good but the white gravel could turn out to be problematic. JonnyD44 had a tank with white substrate and while it looked really cool I remember him complaining about keeping it "clean". Just something to think about.
I love the stacked rocks. They look like artistic zen sculptures. How do you have them fastened or are they merely balancing?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

hello and welcome.
what a lovely tank, yes what are you looking at keeping.
look forward to watching this tank grow.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

hiya well since yesterday ive changed the tank around.ive been looking at other ppls tanks and they look nice and natural and when i look at mine it looks tacky.so i emptyed the whole tank brought some natural coloured gravel.got rid of the blue background and blue plants also the stone ornaments.now it looks 100% better but not finished.i have brought some bogwood thats in the soaking process atm.i was only 1 week into cycling so its not to bad but i feel it was a good decision.i will be buying another background and more plants so when it is done i will upload some pics

the fish i would like are

2 bolivian rams
2 keyhole cichlids
1 dwarf gourami
5 fancy guppys
5 rummynose tetras
5 neon tetras

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
