Picked up 9 ~1in. Harlequin Rasbora from my LFS. Spent about 15 minutes watching them in the store looking for illness and what not, they actually seem very healthy. They were pretty dull colored in the store, but as soon as they were done acclimating and got into the tank with the plants they brightened up a bit almost immediately. Didn't take them very long at all to relax and start exploring the tank. They seem to enjoy swimming through the dangling roots. For a back of a better term they simply looked happy in their new temp. home. Its amazing what proper conditions will do ^,^ Can't wait to see them with the lights on later!


My QT is only 10 gallons, Didn't want to get too many for the first time having fish in it. The tank is planted though not as heavily as my main tank. I wanted to be able to keep a better eye on the fish in there(Frogtbit, Watersprite, Wisteria, Pennywort, Java Moss).

Been in the tank less than 24hrs and they're spawning ^,^ I guess that means they like it?
On a related note.. Only looks like I have two females, Think I may need to hunt a couple more down.

Lovely. They are still "exploring" and will settle down in time. And what an ideal environment for them, couldn't be better, an underwater jungle. Well done.

Aaaaah, they look so HAPPY in there! Makes me grin just looking at them! I love your tank, it's really growing in so well - I must have come UN-subscribed from this thread or something, but what fun going back and looking at all the pictures - it grew right before my eyes! Congrats on the new babies, can't wait to see what comes next!
