    Thanks! appreciate it. And you're so right. I love the planted tanks. I was steered away from them when I first started (by my LFS). They had me afraid of algae and dead plants and difficulty balancing things. They were very wrong.
    but then - it's been all the help I got here on the AC that got me into the plants. LOVE them.

    Awe, thanks. I appreciate that. Your tank looks so great I've had a lot of wonderful examples to learn from.

    I'm in agreement with Matt... I wouldn't change anything.

    Again thanks! much appreciated. And yes, I'm gaining a whole new appreciation for the smaller fish. The endlers absolutely fascinate me. But I'll always love neons.

    Fish I still want someday: killis (you guys are really making them sound desirable) rummys and a pair of GBR's. But until then, I'm happy with what I've got

    Neons are still one of the most beautiful "common" tropical fish to keep, especially for smaller tanks. And to be honest healthy neons are not all that common.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    I've lost about 3 over the last 6 months - but they were the larger ones that I got over 2 years ago. So I'm pretty happy that they've done so well. I love neons. I think they were the first fish to attracted me to keeping an aquarium many years ago when I set up a 10 gallon, didn't know anything and ended up tearing it down within a few months because everything died :o(
    Oh to have had access to the AC then

    I've sure thought about it. Their profile indicates they would be fine with my angel and visa versa.
    I'm comfortable that there would be room because the tank is nicely planted now and there's not too much ground traffic (4 cory cats - my original 4) and the pleco. Also, parameters are always rock solid steady. PH GH and KH are perfect for GBRs and the tank is well established.

    Hum ... maybe this summer. My LFS had some beautiful GBR's last time I was there, some Electric Blues and some yellow ram pairs. All of them were gorgeous.

    I had a pair of GBR once before and loved them. The only reason I lost them was my own stupidity. I've really missed them.

    Hum again .... NOW you've done it. I think I'm seeing rams in my future....

    Yes! I would love to see a new pair of GBRs in our little community again. Mine have actually been working out quite nicely. Not sure if it's because my tank is much older/established now, or that I got them from a breeder, instead of Petsmart, but they seem much healthier so far.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    That's what I've heard about neons. That a lot of people don't have luck with them. My LFS must have a good supplier. I've never had a 'die-off' or even a hint of illness. The ones I lost, I feel confident were do to old age.

    Hey you have never regretted taking my advice! At least not yet!

    Electric blue rams are less hardy but more flashy... I like them a lot.
