    Another tetra for your consideration, HY511 or Candy cane tatra. So new they have not given it a scientific name yet.

    Please do a journal with photos as you progress. Your stocking list has a nice variety of body shapes and colors.

    This coming winter I am considering setting up a 2nd tank (a species tank, maybe a 40 long) and really like the look of the congos. I agree with your Mom - they are beautiful.

    where do u do journals at? i added a few more cardinals this week n ended up finding 4 female rams im debateing of 5 rams is to many im thinking my golden one is female too so 5 female rams XD.the congo tetra's i had to order and will ship next week so waiting on them going to try to get 7-10 of them at once n add stress coat. im currently doing a treatment of Melafix and parasite in my main tank to mainly be safe i had 8 harlequins die 4 where killed by the red minors i had before n i think stress got to the other 4 because they slowly passed away so im going to end up restocking them.Im also getting a new filter system for my tank getting the 2217 for it i want to keep my water as best as i can for them.
    So current stock is:1 golden ram,4 GBR,8 panda cory,2 Harlequin,5 cardinal,1Angel,1 chinese algea eater,1nerite snail

    oh the congo's i ordered at the petstore so once they are in i gota see how many they have so i know how many i can get.

    Also i seen the candy cane tetra's sold in stores but its not really what im looking for was trying to stay with fish that have both body n fins that add color to make the tank very eye catching.

    With everything end result is hopefuly:
    10 Cardinals Tetra
    10 congo Tetra
    10 Harlequin rasbora
    10 Panda Cory(might just stay at 8 not sure yet)
    5 Rams
    1 Angel
    1 Chinese Algea Eater (i might change this out to smaller sized "Otocinclus")

    ++ on the congos. I have 7 males in my 90 and they are gorgeous active fish. Mine are not aggressive but I have heard of some people having trouble with aggression.
    If, however, you can't find them another excellent choice - already mentioned - are the Colombian Tetras. Beautiful fish, totally non aggressive. Male and female look the same. They may be labeled Blue and Red tetras in your LFS. They might not look too colorful in the LFS but when you get them home they will start to color up nicely. Bodies are silver and shiney, dorsal spine is blue and fins are red. When the light hits mine just right their heads look gold. I don't know if anyone who has them that doesn't love them.
