Since setting up this tank the shaded area on the left side, under the large branch, has bothered me. The fish liked hanging out there, but it was kind of dark, and boring with nothing there. I've...

Thanks, I'd appreciate it. As I'm sitting at my desk this evening, it really struck me how quiet this finnex canister filter is once you get all the air out. Granted, I have it sitting on a foam mat...

Thanks for the comments everyone.

I think cardinals will be too large for a 5g, but if you have a decent amount of flow, you might try microdevario kubotai--though their colour requires the proper background to look best. In my tank,...
