    That is going to look amazing in your tank. Please take pics when you do.

    Thanks guys, I can't wait to get it. =] I think one of the most fun things to do in this hobby is actually creating a nice home for your fish. Hopefully I do them justice.

    As for the disease... I just searched for "tetra tail fin falling off" (because it's not rotting). Well, Neon Tetra Disease came up. I thought that only affected Neon Tetras for obvious reasons, but there have been a lot of Black Phantoms, from what I could see, that fell ill to this disease... and unfortunately it's untreatable (like Dwarf Gourami Iridovirus) and fatal.

    So, that sucks... I hope that my taking these sick fish out of the tank eliminates it.

    Thanks Gogi. I definitely will. I'm just praying that whatever those fish had (and I'm leaning toward NTD) is finally out of the tank. Hopefully things will get back to normalcy and I won't have any further deaths.

    I was going to up my Serpae stock today (due to my Phantom losses), too, but the ones I saw at the store today were rather sickly. Not going to risk that one. lol

    I hope that's your answer - too bad you had to lose them all. And who would have thought to look for neon tetra disease in phantoms?

    As for the serpaes, I love those little guys. I must have gotten lucky with mine. It's been several months since I brought 6 home and they've been thriving. They don't eat a lot, I've noticed that but they sure aren't lacking in energy and flash LOL. Hope you can find some good stock soon.

    I love Serpaes. They bring so much energy into the tank. They're probably one of the most playful fish I've seen, so far. They're always swimming around the tank, chasing one another, and displaying their beautiful colors. I have the long fin variety, so their flowing fins are visually stunning with the white/black/orange.

    Ever since I resolved my oxygen issue, I haven't lost a Serpae. Prior to that, I had 3 in the 10gal that lasted the entire time I had the tank (before switching them out). They're definitely one of the more hardy tetras, that's for sure. Looking at them at the store tonight, though, was a let down. It's amazing what a distributor/breeder will send pet stores sometimes.

    It's funny, because Serpaes get such a bad rap around here. I've never had an issue with them terrorizing other fish.

    Oh, and my Opaline Gourami came out tonight when the lights were turned off. He's now hovering in the top-right corner like my old Dwarf Gourami used to do. Such a timid little guy. Can't wait to get my floating plants to give him some coverage. That should make him feel a little more secure. The addition of the bigger/taller driftwood should help, too.

    My dwarfs both have a corner of the tank staked out as their territory. I love it when one of those little guys chest butts the yellow sev or any other fish that gets too close. feisty, they name is dwarf gourami

    Haha, They are definitely fun fish to watch. I loved my Dwarf Blue Gourami. He was quite the looker and had an interesting personality.

    I look forward to my Opaline getting his surroundings, establishing his territory and standing up to the Killifish. I figure they're going to be the potential bullies in the upper levels of the tank, so it should be interesting to see them go at it every now and again. They're pretty rough with each other at times.

    Did you find out in your research that Cardinals are resistant to the illness? I always found this odd.

    Yep, I did. It is odd... Do you think it has something to do with mass "producing" these breeds via excessive inbreeding? I'm not sure how popular cardinals are in the hobby, but I know that Neons have been very popular since at least 30yrs ago. I presume Serpaes and Phantoms are very popular, as well.
