Looking forward to pics. I have a UNS60L (6 gallons, 24x8x8) that I've been stagnating with because I can't decide what livestock to add to it. I'm not at a loss, I've too many choices, so I'd like to see what choices you made.

OK, updated Pic.



Everything going along pretty well. The moss is really starting to take shape around the base of the rocks and I've added more to the back to give it a fuller look. Moss on branches has also filled out. There is a school of Black Neons in there now. I went to one of the better LFS in my area in search of a smaller colorful fish that would scale with a 12 gallon but couldn't find anything and ended up getting the neons at Petco LOL. With the length of this tank the scale with the Black Neons isn't really that bad IMO. Might move them eventually if I could find a smaller fish and go with a bigger school.

Inhabitants right now are:

7 Black Neons
4 Amano Shrimp
3 Otos

Pool Filter Sand (PFS.) There is a bit of aquasoil in the back in case I want to jump start something back there, but it's essentially PFS.

Black neons are such beautiful and underrated/underutilized fish, imo. Your tank looks incredible!

Thanks and yes I agree. You could probably see from the pic they have nice reds and blues in the fins and color on the body. They are also very tight schoolers. These guys are always together.
