That is a very interesting idea of DIY C02 hookup. I might try it myself next week.

in my experience serpae tetras require at least 5 for them to behave peacefully.

As I have not taken care of them, I'm not sure how hardy pennyworts are but I observe that you might be using inert gravel... should upgrade to something like flourite or eco-complete?

yeah I've been thinking of getting a much better substrate
today I set up a medicine tank and used the main tanks water and filter then started treating them
they are going a lot better now.
will get more pics later

Nice tank.
From my experience, I'd suggest you add a few more tetras (both neon tetras and Serpae Tetras) because they really prefer to school together.
But beware with the platys Wink They really produce a lot of waste.

What about the air stone? Being a novice myself, is it okay for the plants? I'm trying, once again, for success with plants.

The airstone Patricia has a negative effect on plants, the surfuce movement the bubbles make dissolve the Co2 with the oxygen it produces. Co2 is absolutly neccesary for photosynthesis. Your fish will be fine, the filter and plants will be all you need for a healthy aquarium. don't worry there will be plenty of oxygen still in the water for plenty of fish!
