Looking for fauna suggestions from you guys.

I'm thinking of 25 Rasbora Maculata, they appear a little more vibrant than the Chili Rasboras. I'm definitely wanting something in the orange/red color spectrum. I thought Ember Tetra's would be cool, but may be a tad on the larger side of things.

Thoughts?

Here is a pic of the Rasbora Maculata.

Those look nice...

Anything will look good with your scape


Heh but ya I dunno chilli rasboras are pretty damn vibrant I haven't seen masculata live, tho I have seen chilli's at a home aquarium and they were really bright (looked WAY better than the ones at the LFS - stress or something probably affecting their coloring?)

That a great use of stone for that tank dimension. Good luck with the impending flood.

Day 25ish?

Still seeing nice crawling by the HC and the DHG is responding well to the recent trimming. I'm thinking of flooding the tank next week. Today I picked up an eheim 2213 and plumbed it all, (can see the stock pipes on left side). I am using one of those SS Mesh Pre-Filters on the intake instead of the standard green one. I don't have any plans at the moment to do glass lily's, I might take a stab at som DIY acrylic ones though. I also added 3 layers of window screen between my bulbs and splash-guard in my light to tame it, it really did make a difference! Last night I picked up a 20oz paintball tank and am waiting for my ASA Valve/NeedleValve/O-Ring/Diffuser kit to arrive...holiday messed that up, should be back in my office on Monday, and it should be there. Once I get that all set up I'll fill the tank, I was going to try to do a two month dry start, but I'm too impatient, and a well respected fellow TPT'er encouraged me to fill it sooner than later. Forgot to mention I also rotated the rock on the back right, I feel like this flows better with the rest of the scape.

Chili rasboras have way more red that makes them pop when you compare them to maculata. Chilis have very bright red and pop against green foliage.

Thanks, I've seen different pictures of both fish, and each have looked more vibrant than each other in various pictures, I suppose it is a toss up.
