Finally have some fish now.


My newly set up tank finally has a few fish in it. Just a few for now.

three Serpae tetras. (I want to get 6 more of these)


Three Otos


One Guppy because I loved the colouring.


And 2 Cories.


Is this the cutest cory ever, or what?


These guys are hard to get in focus.

Your otos and corydoras will want more tankmates. 6 is the minimum amount for a school, and 8 is preferable. Other than that, your fish look wonderful! Are they all in the tank in your signature?

Thanks.
Yes, these are in the sig tank. That's the only tank I have and I started it 5 weeks ago. I plan to get more of each fish, but I want to concentrate on the plants first and slowly add fish to the tank. I kept a planted tank about 15 years ago and then got away from the hobby. Fell off the wagon when I saw a Fluval Studio 600 on sale for half price. I want to get this off to a better start than last time. Goin' slow.

This is a full tank shot on day 9 after planting. I plan to change out most of these plants once the tank is established.

Thanks. It's tricky photographing a moving target through glass.

+1 this, otos and cory do better in groups of 6, in lesser numbers they tend to get more skittish and stressed.
