|Hilde||DHG and microsword look like they need more light.|

Not much to update.
I have some runners of Jungle val. My needle leaf ludwigia melted in just a few days. No noticeable growth of the crypt, DHG, or microsword.
FTS: 11/28/2012 (Still have my ACs on there. I'll probably take them out this weekend. I already put the bio from the ACs into the Eheim 2213. I also plan to move the heater to one of the ends and not on the back wall.

Couple more shots: I need to invest in a macro lens, I hate using generic extension tubes.

Came home with two more female guppies so now a total of three females and one male. Also 3 more neon tetras. I like the look of the tank alot better now that the cories and rainbows are out of it.
Also hooked up my 2213 tonight. It's working like a charm so far.

I think threadfin rainbow would work in the 20G. For minimum size tank for them is a 10G.
So you had those rainbow in a 55G last year. Did you downgrade to a 20G long? Why did you go from 55G to 20G?

|Rion||If you want rainbow fish I would stick to any of the blue-eye rainbow fish species. They stay small (3-5cm) while still having some color. Pseudomugil gertrudae are mostly white but they have yellow top on their pectoral fins so they look like air traffic controllers. Other location varieties like P. gertrudae "ARU II" are much more colorful, with more oranges and yellows. Otherwise the smallest of the similar shaped rainbow fish would be a Melanotaenia praecox (Dwarf Neon Rainbow) which grows to be 6cm long.|

|iadubber||I added turquoise rainbows, they are going already, I just don't like them in this size tank. I didn't mind them when I had some in a 55 last year. My LFS is trading me for them as well as the cory cats I just got. They are digging up my DHG and my substrate altogether and making my water cloudy.|

I've been there that's the best way to learn is trial and error.

|iadubber||Ordered an Eheim 2213. I should have went that route first instead of the AC30 and AC20 but live and learn, I didn't have the money for the 2213 right away and the AC20 was from my 10 gallon. I'll run all three for a couple months.|

Added some needle leaf ludwigia, some turquoise rainbows and three guppies.
