Hey look at that one reply lol thanks Adam, i forgot to mention wbat im working on not saying succesfully lol. I am have my Betta albimaginata going to be relaeasing his eggs out of his mouth in the next few days, i am working Dario dario, and Dario kajal, and celestial pearl danio, i am tired of the half starving concave belly ones they sell in the stores that take a month to fatten up to look good. I also have a wild population of white clouds that breed in my outdoor pond and look so much nicer than any one in a store. And Breeding Orange Rili shrimp too not a fish but oh well lol.

Hah, same, trying to get a giant colony of cherry shrimp started to infect all of my tanks with, and luckily for me the LFS emplyee gave me a berried girl. I think there are some rillis in there too...
I'm going to be trying for clown and lampeye killifish a little later once the former heal from their sickness and the latter get settled in their new tank.

I know, I went to the Wet Spot for some tetras and they caught my eye so much I bought ten. Plus they're pretty nice shoalers and very peaceful, my pearl gets along fabulously with them.
