Oh man, thanks Angella! I love it. Just hope I can keep it looking this way. I have a feeling the Rotala will lose the red/pink color. And I LOVE my Harlequins! I may be adopting some cherry barbs but if not I plan on getting 6 more Harlequins

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)

I know what you mean, I love mine aswell. I love watch them try to mate! I think cherry barbs would be great, but I bump up the harlequin # to 9 or 10. Also were did you find your dwiftwood?

Me too Jayy. I think the Harlequins LOOOOOVE the real plants. Every time I add more plants they start doing their upside down wiggle dance haha! The plants came about 30 minutes before my lunch break, so my wife just floated them in the tank, well the Crypts were potted and sank, when I came home for lunch a couple pairs of the Harlequins were already trying to spawn in them!!! Never did see any eggs though....

No problem Haze, you've honestly done an amazing job.

And you guys make me want to get some harlequins! xD Maybe I should get them instead of my planned red-eye tetras...... Hmmm.

And I'm pretty excited about getting the order of 8 cherry barbs I placed for tomorrow =)

Since the day I got my Harlequins I have been REALLY thinking about getting some Cherry Barbs to go with them. I just think the colors would mesh really well. And would be very nice to look at.

A member of my local fish club has a friend moving out of the country and may be giving his fish away. Among them are 3 Cherry barbs. I have already claimed them if he does decided to rehome them. I will then get another 3 and have 6 Harlequins (may go to 9 like Jayy suggested, lol) and the 6 Cherry barbs. Then just add my Bolivian Ram and call it stocked!

I really like the Cockatoos as well. But.....I told my wife I would stay under $10 a fish and the cheapest I can find a pair is $25. And she doesn't really like they way they look...I think she's crazy. They are such a good looking fish. But I love the Bolivians too and she likes them so thats what I will go with. Want to try and at least keep her interested in it haha.
