Starlight White Beam Bristlenose Pleco L183
4 Otoinculus
4 Apistogramma Trifasciatas
Siamensis Algae Eater
a few surviving Red Cherry Shrimp
One Bamboo Shrimp
Millions of Malaysian Trumpet Snails

And the 8 Penguin Tetras...

Here's a somewhat current photo of my tank. Most of the plants are low plants. The taller plants are at the back. -

Yes false the first picture I posted was a False Penguin Tetra, which you have. The second is a true Penguin Tetra. Theres no difference in behavoir or care, but pattern as you can see. I would say add more floating plants to make them feel more safe. I don't see another reason, but someone may.

Ah, I see. Well, I suppose I should try to space out the Rotala Indica instead of having it in a bunch together. The tetras are hiding mostly in the spaced-out Bacopa.

I don't have anything else that's tall enough. I'll give it a try.

Yes, I think that may be it because most tetras need shade to make them feel at home.

I did see some very lovely Cabomba plants at a store. I wouldn't mind giving hornwort a try.

Just when I had my tank rearranged the way I liked it...

And thank you for the sticker compliment! I have them on most of my tanks. :) I got a whole set off eBay but it doesn't look like the same seller is selling them anymore.

Do you guys have any suggestions for other plants that would do well to give them cover?

Fishy is talking about this -



And my other stickers, but there's one missing, don't know where it is -
