This is all manageable with live plants, and good maintenance. More important than the filter (live plants do filtering anyway) is the weekly partial water change of half the tank. And if this is done, the WC plus well planted, a group of 5 corys wold be OK too.

One caution on the guppy, you mentioned adding females earlier, this is going to mean batches of fry monthly, and unless you have some plan to cull them out, this tank will collapse in no time.

Cool. As wierd as it may be, I actually kinda like the water changes and maintenance work. It gives me something to do other than study :P

And I'm hoping I don't have any females. If I do, I may have to rehome them or keep a seperate tank for the girls - I'd feel really bad for the one or two females getting harassed all the time by the males.

Oh boy... I've been looking around online, and discovered the Glowlight Danio. Is there any easy way to tell the difference between the two species? The store had a tank labled as tetras, but the little bugger I got seems to have small vertical bars that I haven't seen in pictures of glowlight tetras.

The photos in our respective profiles should make it clear for you.

Yup yup - I checked them out earlier (the profiles was where I found out about the two species), and I'm fairly sure he looks more like the danio. It's just difficult to tell with how small he is. I also saw that they are fairly new to the hobby; is it feasable that they had glowlight danios and not tetras at the store?
