I'm sure I won't get all of them out but I'm am going to try to get as many as possible because my colony isn't very large yet. I plan to try to get them out over a couple of weeks.

My plan is to not feed them for a while then put the for in an open part of the tank where they will be easiest to net out. I'm not looking forward to trying to find all the babies though.

After a couple of weeks my fry got a neon green stripe on them, so if they have that there's a good chance they're white cloud minnow fry.

I use it in my 29 gallon as a cap for MTS and it works great. The only downside is that it is light and it's a pain trying to get plants to stay down when planting in it.

New Life Spectrum foods are always good. I use the small fish formula and it floats for a while before it sinks.

Is your tank near a window? All my stem plants bend toward my window before the light comes on then they become straight again when they reach for the light above them.

Some of my crypts are like that in my tank and they are just fine. If you want you could just push them down deeper but it really doesn't matter. They will grow fine either way.

I just looked up green neon tetras and I think that they would be a nice addition to to the Embers. Maybe like 12 Embers and 12 Green Neons with a school of Habrosus and a pair of Rams.

I am not sure if it will cause shadows but if you have it directly on top of the tank you have too much light and will have algae problems unless you run co2.
