Thank you ipkiss. With the rocks and substrate, it's probably closer to 6. The tiny boraras really help fool the eye.

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that. I've never tried guppies, but my son did, and he didn't have any luck with his, either. I wish I could be of help, but I know nothing about them.

Silmarwen, thank you for the kind compliment. Please post a tank journal if you decide to try one. I like the 12 gal long tanks, too. After the water flow issue is out of the way, those make very nice compact tanks that look much, much larger than they are in reality. I wish you the best with your tank.
