Filter: TopFin Silenstream 10
Light: NICREW Classic LED Plus
Substrate: CaribSea Floramax
Maintenance: 50% water change every two weeks
Stocking: 2 male platies and “bonus” snails (what some call pest snails haha)

I am still new to fish keeping and this tank is only a few months old, but everything is growing and the fish seem happy, so I’m proud :p
