rounding out the tank
So far the most vexing part of my fish tank is completing the stocking of it :)
Due to space limitiations, my 12 gallon Eclipse tank is as big as I could get. Currently it houses 5 Harlie rasboras and 1 hillstream loach. After pretty much deciding a small school (4) of dwarf/pygmy cories would be perfect, I discover I can't find them locally. I'm investigating online buying but also perusing alternatives; chief among them would be just increasing the school of Rasboras by 2 or 3. I know they're easy to find and I know they'll be perfectly compatible in the tank and won't overstock it - and might even increase the schooling behavior even more.
Essentially I'm trying to exhaust alternatives now so a week after I finish stocking I don't learn about an option that would've been perfect :)
