Thanks BW - I've now narrowed it down to Kuhli Loaches, Paradise Fish or (now) Platys. I have to figure out which will leave my Cherry Shrimp alone - especially since the Cherries breed.

Must... resist... more... fiddling....

You know - I would actually consider it, but the way I drilled the in/outs I can't :-(

I have seen some outstanding examples though.
