Thanks! I realy like the red wag My wife picked out the sunbursts. I didn't care for them at first, but they are beginning to grow on me. One them is due any day ( I doubt its from the red wag). The other had fry 3 wks ago.

you should be fine on keeping the fry alive... i keep the fry in the main tank but use tons of floating plants and leave my horn wort floating also... if you want you can get horn wort from pet smart and it is cheap grows fast and you can get a lot fast. That is only is you want them in the main tank... that is what i do
