Those gold barbs are really striking with the plant selection. How big are they/how big do they get?

They're about 3" now and have stopped growing. I wanted them to be the "big" fish for this tank. I wanted fish that would pop against the greens and reds of the plants and they suited that description perfectly.

They are frustrating though. Relentless bulldozers and eat shrimp, but they are still fun.

Wait, they uproot plants? I can see the shrimp thing being a thing though.

They regularly uproot my HC (to the point that I have not been able to get it to root despite my best efforts), nibble on my HM and other delicate plants and are generally clumsy fish that wiggle their way through any plant they choose.

They are really pretty, but a pain in the butt

Nice and congrats! I've followed your tank since the beginning so it was nice to read the feature article. As always, the tank is looking great!

Thanks! The tank is finally starting to come into its own. I recently re-read this entire thread and can't believe how far the tank has come in under a year, especially considering the disaster that happened over the summer

Hard to say exactly. A lot of this tank is from stuff I already owned and prices have changed a lot since I bought the equipment originally. I honestly dont keep track of how much I spend on the tank.

If I had to buy everything brand new, it would probably have a replacement cost around 8 grand canadian (give or take)

Shot a quick vid of the tank tonight. Things are finally.. FINALLY stable and growing in like mad, the BBA that had started to creep in has receded and the extra Iron/Ca/Mg dosing I have been doing has made a huge difference in growth/lushness.
