    Love the pics!! And the tank looks great!!

    Just a tip or two, you might need a few more hiding spaces for your serpae's. Barbs can sometimes gets territorial and nippy. I have both in my tank and I've watched my serpae's dart for cover when the barbs get grumpy. LOL!!

    Also your red tail shark will eventually outgrow your tank. They can get big. They can also be aggressive, depends on the shark though I think. I've had both kinds. Some play nice, others don't. ;)

    That Serpae tetra looks pale. It's either stress from the barbs or food. What are you feeding your fishes?

    Serpae tetras should be an intense orange-red.

    Nice looking tank though. If you had some cover like floating plants the barbs would school higher in the tank.
