I was curious what you used for that black background?

it is just a piece of black matte board. I have it leaning against the tank since my stand is wide enough. in the past I've used two small squares of Velcro to stick it to the backside of the tanks back wall. I put one square in the upper corner of each side and it isn't really noticeable when looking at the tank.

Today I picked up some fauna for my tank from my LFS here in So. Cal. I had been debating on Chili Rasboras (25) or Ember Tetras (21) but when I got to CK Fishworld, I saw Peter had a tank full of Neon Green Tetras, after watching them shoal/school back and forth in the tank there, and then watching the Chili's and Ember's, I decided on the Neon Green's. They really pop, and add that "wow factor" to my tank. They are swimming tightly together back and forth and I'm very happy with them. I bought 21 of them.

Peter was great and was very informative. While these NGT's are larger than the Chili Rasboras, I decided that after owning Chili's in the past, and remembering that they are a bit on the timid side of things, that I'd give the NGT's a shot. The only other fish in my tank is an Otto.

If only you had a top for this tank...marbled hatchets would look great in this tank. Good job though

Thanks!

Once everything fills in more, I'll put together a little video of the tank and post it here.

Here is a pic I just took. For whatever reason, the DHG in the right front isn't taking off like it is in the back.

Looks great and great choice on fish. I have never even seen green neons in person, even after 6 years of doing it. Nobody has them around here. They have always interested me though. Looking really good all together.

Thanks talon, I'm very pleased with them.

Here is a picture I just took of a Red Rili, I also have 5 of them in my tank.

I've lost about 10 Green Neons so far, not sure what is going on. Parameters are all on par, CO2 levels are safe.

Thanks for asking.

I rescaped it, it is more of a mountain scape now. I took out all of the HC and most of the DHG, planted lots of individual Hydro Japan nodes, as well as some Foxtail and Rotala Indica. The Hydro Japan will make up the foreground, with the taller Foxtail and R. Indica making up the background. I just planted the Hydro Japan last week and it is filling it nicely, I'll give it a couple more weeks before posting a new pic.
