You really need to get liquid test kits. Your tank is probably in the process of cycling if not finished given the fish load you have in there. If it already happened then the fish are past the worst part, if it's still going on then your fish are suffering.

Depends on the fish... some like goldfish don't do well in a tank heavily planted enough to negate the effects of goldfish cycling. Some people do biotopes that involve little to no plants such as a true amazon tank or a hillstream loach tank.

Bog plants are lovely in a pond, but they don't work in a hillstream tank lol!

I think it would be better if you create a separate thread about this so we can fully address it there instead of dancing around other's posts in this thread.

Comets should be put in ponds because they grow so large. They also produce large amounts of ammonia.
