ok so its time for a fishy update

the first group of fish i got is availible in nz, but i think they are neat.
also i couldnt get my hands on any sundadanio axelrodi.
some are a bit skinny but most are healthy looking fish, i paid for 15 but got around 17 i think.








next is something a little more exciting
Hara jerdoni

they are this super cute catfish, they have really long (incomparrison to their body) pectorial fins
they are nocturnal, but i have seen them shooting between hiding spots




and here are some more photos of my tank and the plants
i got some hygrophila pinnitifida










hope you liked the update

Brilliant job, Pleco!! What a neat set up! Probably could use a slight trim soon.

I love it!

How do you manage to get your brigittae to stand still long enough to snap such clear shots? haha. Mine are either flitting all over the place constantly, or they're hiding in the dense plant cover. :p gorgeous tank with a lot of character. Really nicely done.
