Hi all, I'm going to be setting up a new 2ft aquarium (15 gallons) in the upcoming months but I'm unsure what to put in in. Any suggestions including what fish, plants and anything else would be appreciated. I'm new to planted tanks so unsure about what plants can go with what. Thanks

What types of fish are you interested in? Are you interested in low tech plants?

Some other beautiful schooling fish that you may like are cardinal tetras, diamond tetras, rummy nose tetras & harlequin rasboras.

Some great low tech plants are java moss, java fern, amazon sword & anubias.

Also, a great centerpiece fish would be a dwarf gourami or a honey gourami.

A couple of options for stocking

8 harlequin rasboras or ember tetras
6-8 kuhli loaches
1 honey gourami or GBR

OR
8-10 CPD or Neon tetras
6-8 panda cories
1 Bolivian ram or peacock goby

They don't look like much online but if you see them in person Norman's Lampeyes are cool in a big group- their eyes really shine blue and their bodies have a greeny-blue sheen in some lights. I've got about 14 in a 14.5 gal with a sparkling gourami, although they are still pretty shy.
