    Awesome article. What would you suggest to put in tetra tank in terms of plants? Thx.

    Stem plants and swords, for the most part. Cryptocoryne for the foreground, smaller swords like Echinodorus parviflorus, which tops out at ten inches. Rotala wallachi would be good for stem plants, but has needs high lighting and iron supplication in the water and a fine, iron-rich substrate. The sword, too, needs an iron-rich substrate. Driftwood as well is good to have with tetras. Are you going to use Co2?

    I will, once I get a bigger tank - it's a 6G for now, so I don't even know if it's worth investing in CO2 for it...

    Incredible article!!
    Are there 2 types of Glo(w)light fish? I thought it was only the genetically enhanced Zebra Danios, but are there Glow tetra's too?

    Best regards,
    20 gallon aquarium: 6 Long finned Zebra danios (they were once Ellen4God's),
    2 Black skirt tetras,
    4 neon tetras,
    2 red minor tetras,
    3 otocinclus catfish,
    MANY red cherry shrimp,
    3 Ghost shrimp

    10 gallon aquarium:
    1 African clawed frog

    1.77 Gallon bow-front aquarium:
    1 Female Betta

    There's a Rasbora, R. pauciperforata, that has the electric red line like H. erthrozonus does, but the Rasbora is about a half-inch longer, more slender, and harder to find than the tetra, so those may be the two species you're thinking of, though the Rasbora is from the old world and the tetra from the new.
    Thanks for the comments about my primer :)
