Some of those tetras look like neons to me. The red doesn't go the whole length of the body like cardinals. Or do you have neons as well?

Yes, you are right TheKribKeeper.

There are actually a mixture of green neons (just 2 i think), neons, and cardinals, and rummynose, plus a few guppies.

Looks great! I do think you need some red plants for contrast imo.

I really like this tank! Love how the rocks look and the plants in the nooks and cranny's.

Hey thanks for checking my tank!

Yeah, I was thinking of red plants but I haven't found any that I can grow in this low tech non co2 non fert tank. I did try Alternanthera once, but they just melted and melted and never grew back... That's when I decided to fill up that center area with 100% rotala. I kind of like how it is now...

rustbucket, tinkerpuppet, GreenBliss, Jayme, callisto9, Steveboos, Tcal01,
THANKS FOR THE LOVE GUYS! I really appreciate your nice comments..
