You're right. GLA rounds 14.17in to 15, and 10.24in to 11. Maybe GLA was including the glass in their measurement or something... If they did, then they may have also rounded 5.5g to 6.

Tank is understocked, mangos are a schooling fruit and do best kept in groups of 6+

I've already had 2 jumpers! Will need to stock up, these things don't breed easily in captivity.

Maybe try getting a small dither-fruit such as strawberries or kiwis, that should ease the mango's stress and cut down on jumping

I hear you need to use a spray bottle daily and add citrus fruit to raise the acidity for the mangos to breed

Looks nice. I am beyond dissapointed that I missed out on the gla deal. Totally thought Mr aqua was the only one and now I wait for weeks...or build one hehe
