    Yes you need some floating plants. I would say either works. I think 10 is a good number being they can be shy. Look into which one's are smaller. By the way best choice for you tank imo. Take some pictures when you can would like to see your tank. Not sure about the bleeding hearts.

    If you are up to the challenge, consider German rams instead of bolivians. They are much cooler, but need higher water quality. Anyways, good luck :D

    I have GBR for about a month - they are beautiful but be up for the challenge!

    The silver are far more common and grow a bit larger. The marble ones have more color but are harder to find. I have 5 now and am simply waiting for more to become available at LFS and will increase the school to at least 8. Make sure there is some plant on top for them to hang out around

    Thanks! I am thinking hatchets may not be a good idea, as no one in my house likes them, and I don't want everyone moaning about them! I was thinking a few mollies. I am good at changing my mind - Lol! There is something about mollies that appeals to me (Don't know what!!)

    I can't get GBRs because I already have my Bolivians and I adore them!

    I have attached a pic!

    Thanks for all the help - sorry to mess around

    Awesome tank! Mollies are awesome, especially because you can get so many cool colors. But, when you get a lot, they will have babies so you'll always get more!

    I would consider rummynose tetras if you have your temp closer to 80 or cardinals (neons too but cardinals are better in water 80+)

    Good luck!

    Thanks! Not really a fan of rummies or cardinals. I quite like dalmation mollies so I might get a trio and go from there

    Thanks

    I think if you go the livebearer root I think you should buy platies. They stay smaller and produce a lot less waste.

    If the platies would be the best option, I guess that will have to be what I go for :-)

    Thanks

    I definitely think it would be a better fit. I think do 2 female panda(Black tail white body) platy's and one male of a different color see what happens.
