Some fish just end up being crazy tanks. I had a gourami who died not too long ago at 5yo. who I had through some crazy noobie incidents. He even traveled with me in a tupperware from south Florida to Virginia in a car! I always wish he could have spent more retirement time in the planted tank. He was always so bossy!
Nice tank! It will be nice to see the swords get nice and tall to fill in the top more.
