my galaxies are becoming less shy every day. Hopefully they keep improving and I don't have to change the school!
Hmmm... i don't seem to get that on my stem plants? I've seen it occur in peoples tanks, but never happened to me yet! *cross my fingers*

|Chris_Produces||What do you do about all the roots shooting out laterally from the stem plants? Just keep them trimmed off the main stem shaft? It looks so clean.|

|Duck5003||I think a nice school of embers would really pop in your scape. I'm a huge fan of penguin tetras, really cool fish but I just can't picture them in that tank. A nice school of 20 or so embers would fit nicely though with all the color you have in there|

04/13/14 - Large Trim - Myrio, tuberculatum 'Red' added
Let the tank get a little jungly...
-Lud. Red grows like a weed .... gotta trim it aggressive twice a week or it'll get too tall and shade other plants..
-Fissidens Fontanus shaded Tonina Queen, so it started browning. thinned out 3 gb's of fissidens
-Can't really grow Lud. 'Tornado' that very well (3rd try). So, replaced it with Myrio, tuberculatum 'Red'. Hopefully im still in contrasting colors as its looks more of an orangish color next to alth. rei. 'var'.
Other then that, same o same o..
the lengthy process of uprooting stems out of the tank, trimming it to the height you want, then re-planting tops back...
Myrio, tuberculatum 'Red' added in place of lud. 'tornado'

Ember tetras are nice. I have a small school with orange flash Apistograma. I like them!
I didn't think I would ever get them but for the longest time my 140 seemed bare. I picked up a large school of of glow light tetra (Hemigrammus erythrozonus). They actually turned out looking pretty darn neat. The red line and red dot in their eyes picks up the red in all my lighting and 'glows' a iridescent red color. They pretty much hang out and swim together.
I agree with the CPD, shy critter. Tried them, don't like the behavior.
Being a 7' 140 gallon tank I also picked up a school of black neon tetra. Now these to me look exactly like the glow lights but has a dark iridescent line. They mix in my 140 pretty nicely. Both schools will all mix up, then head off in their own way trying to school with their own species...

I've been thinking of ordering some chilli/mosquito rasboras but have been flirting with the idea of embers if I can find them decent price. I might just end up going with green neons or maybe cardinals even as a last resort.

|Shimagoma||my neons do the exact same thing, I think adding something to scoot them around the landscape might help, moving the filter output moved mine to a more interesting location|

So I have about 2 dozen galaxy/celestial danios..
I'm getting a little annoyed how they only come out during feeding... Other then that there always hidden in the plants.
I love these guys, but either want to add another active/less shy schooling fish to always be out and about or remove these guys if you think having 2 schools of different fish is an eye sore?
What do you guys think?
Thinking of adding a school of ember tetras or penguin tetras.
