55g Uruguayan

i moved some stock and sold some off and this is what i ended up with. i purchased 5 Gymnogeophagus sp. "El Norte" and 3 Gymnogeophagus sp. "Yerbalito" and a Crenicichla puctata "Blue 33". i had a large amazon sword and a piece of driftwood with java fern attached. i also picked up some plants at our clubs auction today, but i can't remember its name. i plan on keeping the tank unheated, this should replicate the fishes natural temperatures. i'll be adding more plants later on and be upgrading to a 75g when they get larger

Those are some nice looking fish!

Have you tried standing that piece of driftwood in the back upright?
