Set up the tank and it looks amazing. The Rasboras tend to school together around the plants and the Dwarf Gourami, who has amazing color, kind of just swims around. I did end up going with a male Gourami but it should be fine. They all seem to get along very well, especially since the tank has room for them to have their space.

Thank you I'm really happy it turned out so well for a ten gallon. It really adds flare to my dorm room. I had a small yellow guppy in another tank that was all alone because the last of its companions had died, so I tried putting him in the tank with the Gourami for the time being. For some reason, it is infatuated with the Gourami and follows it, but not threateningly. It constantly floats close to its side, no matter where it goes. The Gourami doesn't really seem to mind at all, it just kind of goes about it's business, but it's pretty funny to watch.

I sort of know what you mean, the Tiger barbs in my semi-aggressive tank are, like all other tiger barbs, fin nippers. The blue dwarf gourami is at the center of their nipping, but when they start to chase the blue gourami the redtail shark will come out and follow the gourami and actually protect him. Fish are like women I will never understand but they are always interesting to watch :p

^Oh so true
I'm not sure what the Kelvin rating is. To tell you the truth I don't even really know what that is. Is it important to know and where would I find out?

plants

you can find it on the box of the bulb and sometimes on the base...6500K is a good spectrum to promote proper photosynthesys....

Thank you. I've been thinking of putting a few more plants in there because they love hiding in the ones I have in there
