    Very nice tank, it will look especially nice when those background plants fill in. Since you seem to have all very small fish why not continue it with a large shoal of Chili Rasboras, when kept in good condition they are truely stunning little fish...would definatly add a splash of color. I wouldnt be afraid to bump their shoal on up to around 16 members personally. Good filtration and live plants, plus low bioload fish to start with....you should be fine with that.

    Yep. I'm gonna be adding about 2-3 more so I can start breeding them.

    Thank you! Yep, I've been thinking about keeping Chili Rasboras but I'm not exactly sure if I'm gonna get bigger species of fish. If I get bigger species (around 3-4",) would they get eaten by the other fish? Probably will do either Threadfin/Forktail Rainborwfish or some of the Chili Rasboras.

    Your tank looks great! I think a nice sized school of cardinal or rummy nose tetras would look nice in your aquarium!
