fishboy199413 I actually already have some otos and shrimp in there. I am looking for fish that will compliment the other fish that swim midwater.

pseudomugil some otos, for the price of some blanched zuchini every week, they will rid your tank of algae, and look cute while doing it!

fishboy199413 What do you guys think I should add?

fishboy199413 Hey I was wondering what I fish I should add to compliment the fish in there presently? Some of the fish that I am looking at are green neon tetras, cardinal tetras, Trigonostigma hengeli, or something else. what do you all think? I was thinking green neons becasue I have seen how they look when acclimated but they do not always look very bright. I plan to add a school of 10 or so. Give me your advice please.

TonyK It looks good. I like how you have one area where most of the plants are planted.

8/5 Update

Well now that I have described the update how about some pics.

Hope you enjoy!

fishboy199413 Well it has been awhile since I updated this journal but is doing well. It does not look much different but the plants have filled in a little more. I have also stocked it with:

20 Boraras maculatus
Some Emerald Danios
Tons of Cherry Shrimp
Some Otos
Possibly 3 Dario hysginon but I jave not seen them in a while

fishboy199413 Here are the pictures of the tank setup but I have not completely planted the tank yet so it may look a little bare. Also sorry about the glare.
