Looking good. I think you should try to utilize more of the height in your tank with some driftwood or stones.

Unless you were going to do that with plants instead and make a jungle.

This ^^^

It'll take a little time to fill out but I think it'll be worth it.

Update 1-20-13:

I've added two more varieties of plant and the rest are starting to take off well.

I really like your wood layout. This is going to be nice once it fills out.

Update, some stock changes have been made and I now have about 13-15 (gotta try and count the all) Dwarf Paradox Rainbows, a few Featherfin Rainbows, 2 baby whales, a Bolivian Ram and about 13-15 Eight-Banded Barbs. Sudthimunkis are still to come, I have 6 in another tank and when I get about 6 more I will add them to the tank and likely call it a day. Here's an updated shot of the tank.

I would get rid of the baby whales as they are very specialized feeders, but you may already know that. Other than that it looks great.

Thanks for the advice and yes I do know that. I've kept them before with success, I have a method for feeding them that mostly involves feeding after dark when everyone else has a full belly. So far so good, though if troubles do occur I do have other tanks that can accommodate them if need be.
