Well first off my tank has a 5500k bulb and is a 20 gallon High




The plants that i want to get are Java Moss, Java Fern, Wisteria.

I would also like it if you guys recommended some other plants that would take in a great deal of waste since I want to get these planted in the tank so i can stock it without having to worry about the Nitrate levels getting too high every week

I currently have 2 Zebra Danios, 1 Molly, 2 Red fit tetra.'

I want to get atleast 3 more Zebra Danios, like 5 or 6 Neon.

Would also like recommendations on fish that do well with live plants and these fish without big fights and would do well in a 20 gallon tank.

Thanks

(Edit) Forgot to mention that i was thinking about swapping out the Neon Tetras for Guppies for some color or would both Neons and Guppies do well in the tank together?

Do you know your water hardness and PH ? That would give you a guideline for researching which fish would do best with your water. Live bearers typically do best in hard water with a higher PH. Tetras normally do best in softer, more acidic water.

my PH always sits between 7.5 and 7.6 and i am guessing i have decently soft water since i never get hard water stains on anything really. my tank water sits at between 78 and 80 degrees, and i just switched to Sand in my tank so i don't know if that will change anything but that is why the tank looks a little bit cloudy its almost fully cleared up
