Thanks for the advice on the tetras, They actuly school with the guppies right now its kind of cute! I have a pic of the new tank set up but this was before I had seporated the plants from the pots so there is just a few clumps of plants. I eneded up buying the whole set up from Petco. They had a fish expert there who was really nice. He was the one that recomened buying two filters/heaters so that way it is even throughout the tank. I told him for the plants just give me a bunch that would do well with my set up. I now understand why he kept saying this is a good bunch as he picked up what I thought was one plant. I also added the plants from the 10 gallon tank and a bought a few more.

clams i wanted too! but i was reading if you dont have nasty water they end up just dying and foul your water badly. are those plants the big nice ones have white on the leafs? i believe i had that same plant. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/a...-these-126797/ we talked about how it isnt a true aquatic plant. i also got it from petco and 6 months later it died. btw i like your tank! looks great dodge. now ya just need a big rooty peice of drift wood! haha

I think they are chlorophytum comosum They look like a mix between a spider plant and a damn it I cant think of the other name of the plant but am pretty shure that they are chlorophytum comosum. No drift wood for me too dirty. I added alot of decorations and I have 4 good hiding spots for the fish now. If I remember Ill take a pic when I get off at 7am and upload tomarrow! I will keep you updated on the clams..... maby, hopfully, you were misinformed.....

And Just so no one gets mad at me.....When I went back to the store to purchase some supplies...... Please don't yell at me..... I bought back my Green spotted puffer fish...... I know I know I shouldn't have, but he was all alone in the tank and when he saw me he came flying up to the glass.... I just had to.... I think that I am going to convert the 10 gallon tank into a brackish water tank for him..... I know I did a bad thing but he is just so damn cute!

And rexpepper651 where are you from? I don't know if it would be possible or safe for a tank but come summer time I could dig up 40 or so of the small clams from the lake and send em to you.... There tiny about .25" to .50" big, black in color with a whiteish or pearlish color on the hinge.....

here is what the clams look like from my lake http://www.aquariumfish.net/images_0...13a2_w0640.jpg . I think they are Corbicula fluminea. THe ones I bought at my LFS look like your everyday clam though
