Agree, very well done. After a couple months when those plants have spread a bit, wow. Good work.

Got an update on the fish:
The angelfish are gone to a new home as are the gurami.
The swordtail died(guess old age as they showed no signs of trouble).
So i am left with:
29 neon tetra(going to buy 21 more to have 50)
4 boesemani
5 tiger barbs that i never see anymore, they always play in the back of the tank where the plants are
1 betta female
1 ancistrus(that needs to go to)
3 aymonieri tlat alos must go as they dont do their job anymore.

Probably best for the CAE's to go since they're grumps anyway, but why are you getting rid of the ancistrus? Nice looking fish if you ask me.

Gonna add more rainbows, maybe?

Gonna get 1 more rainbow and 21 neons. That's gonna be it. I kinda like the nonbusy look of the tank.
Ancistrus is nice but he is already unrooting my plants and i can only imagine what he will do when he's 10-15 cm big... Chaos!
Not sure how i'm gonna get the ancistrus and aymonieri out but... if anyone has a good idea i'm all ears!

You could try the bottle-capture method. Take a disposable plastic water bottle and cut the top 1/3rd or so off. Unscrew the lid from this and insert it back down into the bottle, lid side facing into the bottle. Put some food that attracts the fish you're trying to catch into it and sink it in the tank near the fish. They should swim into the device but aren't able to figure out how to escape. With all of those other fish you're likely to catch some fish other than the ones you're after but it should eventually work.

I did try to bottle trick a few days ago but i always ended up with neon tetras inside and the ancistrus was just swiming at the entrance of the bottle BUT never got near entered. As for the 3 grumps they never even got close to it.
Someone suggested on another forum i visit to harpoon them with a needle glued to a long piece of steel rod but i find that a bit extreme as i dont want the fish dead i just want them out of my tank.
A way will be found to get them out in 1 piece, it's just eluding me right now.

...Harpoon them? That's pretty much textbook "animal cruelty" if you ask me.

Sometimes you just have to bit the bullet and pull out all of the decor. Two big nets can work wonders in an empty tank.
