I've long come to accept that I'm a lot happier if I judge movies independent of the book they were based on.

Ender's Game is an awesome book and the trailer looks pretty exciting, but right off...

I've got CPDs too and love them, but I think my next nanofish is going to be Chili Rasboras. I think they would set off nicely with all the green and black in your tank.
