    Sounds like a good plan. The sword will need to be trimmed often as it will fill the tank by itself if you let it.

    That's a good thing at the moment lol. Right now it's pretty small, the shortest are about 4 inches and the tallest maybe 9. I'll let them grow a bit, then start trimming. =D Thanks for the advice!

    After sitting a week without a filter (it came broken and I had to have a replacement sent), I'm finally cycling! It's a good feeling, I just hope it all goes smoothly... every time I go to the store I stare in at the fish I want forever... the people that work there must think I'm nuts! xD

    Anyhow, here's a picture and a little video. I added a couple more plants after taking these, but it looks pretty much the same (just added a few more swords to the back to fill it out).



    See the Video here!

    Can't wait to get fishies!!

    I LOVE the picture! That is the kind of tank I appreciate the most. Great job. Your fish will love it.

    Thank you so much! I appreciate any feedback, this is my first planted tank... my last (and first ever tank) was a 10 gallon with 1 goldfish..and I didn't really know what I was doing when I started out.

    I'm looking forward to the plans filling out more over the next month while I cycle. I want to make sure there's plenty of hiding space for my fishies!

    Looks good! If it was me I'd get six neons and six cardinals. I personally think seeing the two schools interact would be interesting, but whatever floats your boat. Good luck on the tank!
    A severe lack of trichogaster.

    Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
    Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

    =D I like that idea a lot actually! I was considering it before, but I didn't know if Neons liked to be the only tetra species in the tank or not. Cardinals are probably similar enough anyway, though.

    Thank you for the suggestion!
