Are these three the species you want to focus on? If so, I think it would be great if you upped the number of neons to 10-12. They like to have buddies, like the cories, and they'd be happier in a larger group. I'd also err on a larger school of any group if you have the room -i.e. a total of 8 danios instead of 7.

(Not speaking for the water condition capabilities as I don't know them offhand.)

I like the panda cories - very cute. How are your little guys doing?

They started out shy but now they are swimming all over the place and keep racing most of the way up the tank then rocketing back to the bottom. They have been fun to watch.

As far as what I want in the tank I really like my zebra danios and the corys. I deffinatly want a few more zebras to keep them happy, and so far the corys are cool and I plan to get more (maybe different spiecies but still corys). My wife liked the neon tetras at the store so I have been thinking about them.

I know it keeps changing slightly but for now I think I am just going to get my remaining zebras and corys, then reevaluate my remaining tank availability. Between now and then I plan on asking many questions and continue to read articales.

Thanks everyone
