Added some neon tetras and really liking the activity now. bought 3 more harlys (someone came in friday and snagged most of them litterally just an hour or so before me) so I still gotta get 3 more but i got 8 neons, though i meant to get only 7 but the guy gave me an extra (found out after i got home) sooo yay for free fish. spent 10$ on 11 fish, saved 11$. haha yeah petsmart is having a huge fish sale soooooo


but yeah. everyone's lookin good. my tank parameters are still in check. tested before the WC and ammonia and nitrites were 0, nitrates I think werea bout 10, so it looks like once a week WCs is what ill be doing :D (only say that cus i know theres some peeps who do 2) We'll see how this week goes.

I would up the corys to 8 but I like my schools on the larger side. I would at least add the extra to bring it to 6.

you sure there's enough room with my BN? I don't want to spend 5$ per cory only to find out after the 19 day return policy that it's just too much down there.

The BN will go everywhere, not just on the bottom. I wouldn't be worried in the least.
