You tank is beautiful! Great job on the plants. They look very healthy! I have had Rosy Barbs before and my 75 Gallon was just enough at 4 foot long for them to really swim. they loved it! They would race from end to end. Sadly that 10 gallon is way too small for those fish. They require minimum 36 inches. Please review the profiles for Rosy Barb. You can already see the aggression between 2 of them in the video, spinning around each other. Mine did this in the 75 gallon. In a 10 Gallon there is NO place to hide or get away. Please reconsider this fish and re-home them.

I moved the barbs to the ref ponds, they are not as big as 75 gallons though. But they are more or less 50 gallons, so they will have bigger space to swim.
I am keeping 5 guppies here now. HPK. :D

Kinda interupting here so sorry.


I highly recommend the common inexpensive 6500K spiral "pig tail" cfls from you local wall mart. In fact I go outts my way to find "beginner" setups with just a 10g tank and an incandescent hood.
