I prefer the green neon, even though it isn't one of the two you mentioned. I like the absence of the red stripe, and the blue changes from blue to green depending on the lighting. They are usually a...

Hex tanks are really hard to scape. The best ones I have seen use tall driftwood in the middle with plants attached to it. Maybe some vals or other tall thin plants in the back, with anubias and/or...

I know hydrophyte had a brackish riparium at one point. I don't know if he still has it. He could probably give you some advice on what plants would work for you.

If you decide on kribs, I would try to get one of their cousins instead of the normal kribs. The pelvicachromis taeniatus is very similar to a normal krib, but I think they are a lot more colorful...

I like the first one better, too. I like the fact that it is more vertical and it looks more like a stump to me. I don't like the way the second one looks, but I am not sure why.

I have, but this tank isn't a good shape for that. Being a 40 breeder, it isn't very deep, and with my roommates' 3 cats, an open top tank is out of the question. If not for them, I would probably...

I have had both otos and amanos in the past, but currently I don't have any. This tank doesn't even have a pleco in it. I have a pair in my 40, but I don't want to split them up.
