The pygmy corydoras that Rachel had were very small, right? That is my only concern, I would rather get adult fish...

I've had that crypt for about 4yrs now. I just trimmed it last week. Even when I had low lights it would grow out of the tank. These two are older pics.

they are smaller then I thought they'd be for sure. I thing maybe half inch the most, I could have bought 10! but the do sparkle and have a beautiful blue eye and kind of spangled, but they like to stay in the plants so far. If I had a better camera...

Qckwzrd love your tanks and riparium looks like something I'd love to have
Can it be in a warm room? just asking because I'd like to eventually put a tank or something in front room which is small and can get quite warm.

thanx! it can be, the plants are tropical so they wouldn't mind the heat. I haven't been able to get a wide variety of plants thats why its all green. I have a heater for it but never needed to plug it in and the cories and killie seem to enjoy the cool waters. I also have a praying mantis living in the foliage (sometimes)
