Starting Up New Freshwater Tank Help

    Hi everyone!

    I’m just wondering on a good process to clean out a large tank thoroughly in place for some new fish!!

    The tank I currently have is a 2.5 foot 115 litres. I am hoping to fit easy to care for community fish in and hopefully some low maintenance live plants (or fake plants) as well. Any recommendations are welcome!

    I currently have a sponge filter for this aquarium and can also add another small tank filter I have for another tank.

    If anyone has any recommendations on filters, fish, plants or cleaning please let me know! Any help is appreciated

    Plants: Hygrophila Polysperma
    Fish: can you narrow it down a bit please?
    Cleaning: do weekly water changes and if it has spots just scrub them off

    The fish I’m looking for are smaller ones so I can create more of a community feel. I would like one star fish and then say some tetras or barbs. I’ll have to do some more research regarding the fish
    Should I just clean the used tank with some warm water to get it ready to be reused?
