Go with Espei's! You could use a little red and orange in your tank
I like those fish too but not enough to house in my tank. :P

I'm thinking about a school of Exodon Paradoxus .

Bummer about the carpet surfing Altum.

I have an open top 20L that's become mainly a cat drinking fountain LOL. They jump up and balance on the rim to take long drinks. Once in a while I'll see a wet leg or two running around the house when they slip into the tank. They've already broken the glass cover I had. I'd need to raise the tank five feet high to keep 'em off. I think I'll set up a 5 gal decoy tank with an Aquaclear filter to keep 'em off my 20L. They are really attracted to the running water and nice taste of a cycled tank.

BTW, love your tank, fish and mad photo skills. Nicely refined watermark too.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

As long as your cats don't go swimming in there,

Thanks Steve!

Actually a couple have already. Lucky there is no flora or fauna in there yet. I'll have to make a cover strong enough to take jumping cats so I can finally get some shrimp in this tank.

Do it! Those look awesome. You'll need 50+ to get that effect in the 120p.

First I'll need to find who carries them around here. That dude only had 34 in his 75g and it looked like plenty in there. 50 might be too many haha.

Some breeds love water. My recently late Norwegian forest cat (RIP 8/12) was one of the swimmers. Sweetheart loved water.

My other swimmer doesn't. Unfortunately she is also in renal failure and might die soon. She's my favorite and I'm her favorite person.
