Everythings growing good ill try to snap a pic tomorrow. I have more stems of ludwigia than I know what to do with. I have it on good authority that I'm getting some play money for fish and plants this christmas so I can do what I wanted originally plant-wise.
I'm having trouble deciding on fish though so maybe I should start a poll and get some opinions. I'm leaning towards a big school of threadfin rainbows, in part because my sids have become pretty reclusive and im hoping a big active school will give them some confidence, that and the angels are going bye bye as i think that may have something to do with it. I'm also considering congo tetras. Congos are pretty and even though theyre peaceful I am afraid their size might scare the loaches and keep them hiding out in the cave.
So the breakdown is:
-cool finnage when displaying
-could breed them with the tank space I have available
-small size make make the tank look larger
-smaller school but larger size makes them a big eye catcher
-constantly very colorful as opposed to the rainbows with which males are only colorful and only as pretty as congos when displaying, IMO.
-may detract from the scape since the tank isn't that large
-may keep loaches in hiding, but I'm not certain on this
I typically like smaller fish in larger numbers but I'm drawn to the show-E-ness of congos as of late, so I'm having trouble deciding.
What do you guys think?
