    Your tank looks great with your fish. The cherry barbs are beautiful. Love your peppered cories. I'm going to have a school of 12 in my new 29 gallon.

    If you're considering zebra danios, a school of 12 longfin danios would be really nice. I love my longfin danios, they're really a very pretty fish. You want to be sure to have a 1 to 2 ratio of males to females, as the boys really do chase the girls.

    Both the tank and fish realy look great FF. You should with a school Penquin tetras like you wanted. If not Black neons are very underrated as I've stated before, you would not go wrong with either. They would both love your pH.

    A pair of these dwarf chiclids would look cool in your tank:

    such a crazily sexy tank, its ridiculous. and just to rub it in, its basically brand new.
    I let my planted tank fizzle out of control but i think you've inspired me to try again.

    Thanks for this - do you know what species this is?

    EDIT: found it! Laetacara dorsigera. Ok, reading up. Thanks.

    Interesting species. You don't see them that often. Might be a better choice with your tapwater and it seems a little less likely to go homicidal maniac when they start breeding.

    The tank as a whole seems to be progressing nicely. I like it!

    Cheers, yes - when it grows in a bit more I'll soften the borders between plant species. I still have a LOAD of alternanthera to add from the shrimp tank (which will eventually be broken down and sold).

    Yes, looking at that Laetacara dorsigera, I didn't realise it was an acara. It's meant to be very peaceful and laid back which is good - and should tolerate my hard water. I'll add it to the shortlist.

    There's another species from this family that gets a little bigger (not much) that is just as peaceful and been around longer, Laetacara curviceps. Yes they used to class them in the Acara family untill recently.

    Another photo session tonight.

    Last night I planted up some of the alternanthera from the shrimp tank. I also tried removing the rock from the wood to see how waterlogged it was. I fully expected it to still be floating but it just about stayed put so I risked it and removed the rock. It hasn't moved so I think I'm safe. I pulled some of the anubias from the other wood and wedged them into the holes in the new wood.

    Here's a full tank shot. My next putchase will be some black or clear pipework. I have a double length spraybar I planned to install in this tank across the back but the curved connecter I have here (between the pipework and the spraybar) doesn't have any way of pointing along the back rather than straight out from back to front. I will look at options for changing this. If anyone can recommend anything I'd appreciate it.



    Frogbit seems to be doing ok.



    It's a shame the glass needs a clean as I think this is the sharpest shot I've ever got of a male cherry barb!
