    Hi,
    I see you have 2 schoolfishes, I think it should be better that you have only 1 school, but more of them.

    And I only see plastic plants, they are nice, but you need real plants to keep the tank healthy.
    Fishes produce Ammonium, after some reactions it become nitrate (NO3-) and it are the plants who use the nitrate to grow.
    Sow if you don't want any problems, just buy some plants who grows fast (cabomba is very good) or you have to refresh every week 25% of your tank.

    Wonderful looking tank! :D

    Plants will only use a tiny amount of the nitrates and in my opinion they are not needed to keep a tank healthy. Also you should be changing around 20-25% of your water once a week wether oyu have live plants or not.

    I have artifical plants and my fish are doing just find.

    Anyway, nice tank and well planted too. =D I'm going to get more artificial plants because my tank looks bigger than I thought.

    I'm new to this and I have all real plants but it seams that with either way the same mainanance is required except with fake ones you get less snails and you may have to clean your plants :) correct me if i'm wrong :)
