Thank you. I'm so tempted to introduce a betta in there.

Hey what substrate do you have? Tank looking fantastic... How did you cycle the tank so quickly? My Ada soil taking forever to get levels down done about 10 x 90 - 99% water changes. Still levels high

I'm using Eco-complete only. My LFS gave me a piece of seeded filter media and I also used aquavitro seed. I have a 10 gallon tank that has dirt capped with black blasting sand that took about a month to cycle.

What happened to your tiger barbs??

I have a 29 gallon fake planted tank with a nice selection of fish but I'm wanting to start my first planted. This was a great thread to read through!

Sadly I wanted other fish aside from just one species. So I called up my LFS and traded them in. I'm fairly content with my fish now, but I do miss them feisty barbs.

And yea, search around the forums for ideas and make sure to ask plenty of questions. We're here for you.
