Thanks so much all!

We add fish after about 1 month, on average, sometimes sooner though.
That's actually not a Crypt, bit rather that new Hygrophilia-- Porto Vallejo or something like that?? It was featured in the newest issue of TAG-- maybe someone can clear that name up for me. We got it in Japan, and I had never seen it before here, but I guess it is starting to make its way around. It has the coolest growth pattern and we have been using it a lot lately.
Here we are using Amber tetras (smaller reddish guys) and a new-to-the hobby tetra (seemingly) in the same family as Bleeding Hearts, but for now they only seem to have a location number, which I forget at the moment.
