Wow.... sorry for taking over that thread.
Oh no, thanks for the help. While I had one tank before that I had some plants in with some dwarf gouramis it was a VERY beginner/learning tank. I am hoping to turn this one into something that is a lot more.

Thanks for the pic 2la. That does make it clear. I am going to try a fish store in lansing later on in the week that is supposed to be much larger than anything around here. Hopefully I will be able to find a pair of females there.

ok, it has been a while and a lot has changed in the tank. First I lost one of my Pearls within the first 24 hours. The other two are still around, but are not acting like the grouamis I have owned before. They still swim at the bottom of the tank an hide deep in my plants.

I have been fighting algae galore. The stringy green algae is everywhere, especially lower in the tank where it collects in the gravel and around my low plants. I have just been doing my cleaning and cut boack the lighting from 12 to 10 hours.

I am still in the phase of just growing out the plants I have and the ones I got in my shipment. I want to do some organizing and rearranging of things, but I am afraid of an even worse algae outbreak if I do some major overhauls.

Here is a pic of the algae

Here is an update on my baby red tiger that I have
