Thanks all! The pics are slighty out dated and the tank is currently is a jungle and needs a trim.

Took 2 quick shots of the tank as it stands today. It needs a serious trim/pull but won't have time until later this week after finals.




I'm also trying to find some Forktail Rainbows to add to the tank. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great!

Thanks! They love their algae chips and one of them is a female with nice yellow eggs. No breeding yet probably because my pH is too high

Exams are done and over with...I can finally work on the tank. Clear out the jungle and rescape the tank is the plan. I will be pulling out at least one of the pieces of driftwood and it will be replaced with another piece from another tank that I tore down a couple of months back.

what is going in the tank


In the near future I plan on buying around 8 Celestial Pearl Danios would love some dwarf rasboras but my pH is too high for them.
