another question, i'm thinking to add some juvenile Melanotaenia rainbows in this tank. do you guys think it's a bad idea? i kept some boesemani awhile back and they were really peaceful. what do you think? if it's a bad idea and will cause those pseudomugil harm i will abandon the idea.

|danakin||Is it possible the algae eaters are going after your shrimp? They harassed mine every time, seem to have a mean streak towards certain things.|

they're still adapting in my tank too i guess. some of them just stays in the dark top righ corner while others swim freely.
sorry about the photos, i don't know why the results are yellowish

|HybridHerp||That is quiet the collection. Also, I am super jealous of your collection of various Anubias, really great work with that.|

I've been checking these photos out for the past few hours and have to say, those P. furcatas and other Pseudomugil are gorgeous.
Makes me wish they were more popular in the United States.
Your tank just goes to show how attractive and colorful they are. Can't wait to see more photos.

|chad320||Nice looking tank. I love the fish. Crypts definitely dont kill shrimps. I would check the hardness of your water maybe?|

i don't know about red flint but if its too light it will be a problem at the planting stage. it won't hold your plant firmly.
and now unto the fish, some are not coloured up yet just added them 2 days ago
this is the real reason i want to keep pseudomugils. lfs here called it Pseudomugil sp red neon. probably a different color strain of Pseudomugil paskai.
Pseudomugil gertrudae, very active, it's hard to take their photos
Pseudomugil signifer, still young not yet showing their true form
not a Pseudomugil but i just can't resist adding them to this tank. beautiful fins.
i need a bottom scavenger for the leftover food
anubias algae cleanup crew
somehow i can't keep shrimps in this tank. they just end up dead within the day or two even after i acclimatized them first for hours. i read before that some cryptocorynes release some kind of chemical that's deadly for shrimps. is this true or something else kill my shrimps. i have red cheries in my other tank without crypts and they're absolutely fine.

|dprais1||I'd lobe to know what substrate you are using, I have red flint but it is too lightfor my taste, but I like the fact that it is not all one color. what are you using?|

The Pseudomugil Tank
Some of you may recognize this tank. I have it for the last 5 years. Used it for keeping tiger barbs, one of the fish i love. This was the thread back then :
After many rescapes and many various species i kept in this tank, i wanted to keep rainbows here. espescially the beautiful Melanotaenia trifasciata and boesemani. but i dont think my tank large enough for them, so finally decide to keep pseudomugils here. A genus of beautiful small blue eyes fish.
Here we go, the photos :
not much of a scape here, i only used this tank for a while to keep some of my favourite plants. no hardscape, just some plants here and there.
Anubias coffeefolia, it has been my favourite for years
Cryptocoryne wendtii brown
Cryptocoryne wendtii green
right side, Cryptocoryne aponogetifolia
left area, i should remove those yellowing marselia later
mid area, the coffefolias are outgrowing cryptocoryne nevillii
right area, is where i put some anubias petite, and some other anubias plantlets
what do you think?
please leave any comments and suggestions
i will post everything about the fish tomorrow
