My Fish Tank

So In November 2005 I decided to get an aquarium. Should have waited until boxing day, but that's another story. Anyway after setting up the 40 Gal Hex Tank with some blue gravel and 3 plastic plants, I added water. I then decided that I needed an air stone, so I put a 15 cm stone that split the tank at the 1/3 mark. I let the tank run for about a week and then added my first Fish...

I was told to get 5 Platy's for their toughness to survive the ammonia cycle. 2 weeks later I started adding more fish. Things were going great I lost 3 fish over 2 months, no big deal, then I fell into a very common trap and lost about 10 fish over a week. What's the trap you ask? Over feeding, fish will eat themselves to death. I didn't feed them for a few days and then fed them once a day with some medicated food and the die off stopped.

This is what I have in my tank right now. Pictures to follow.
