What kind are the new crypts?

The 10 gallon looks really good! Bacopa caroliniana and Myriophyllum heterophyllum? Shrimp should be very happy in there. If you decide you want some moss too I can hook you up.

Will do! The only thing I really have to compare it to is my 29 gal, so I'm not too sure how much of a comparison it will be. I want to try to take daily pictures of it. Maybe I should just start a new thread.... (goes to start a new thread)

I'm pretty sure there is red and green wendtii in there as well as some spiralis. They all came packaged together, so I'm really just guessing as what is what. But already that forest seems to draw the aggressive female gourami, so I'm really hoping it will get rid of almost all the aggression!

Thanks! I'm happy with the way it's coming along, too. You're spot on with your plants! lol! Myrio's name is just too long for me, so I'm calling it Myrio!

GUYS!!!!!!!!!!! They're here! I bought my cardinal tetra from the lovely lady that I bought my farlowella from. They arrived today! There was one DOA, but she sent extras. I think I have 12 in there. They are so darn hard to count! No pictures of as right now as they are still acclimating, but I'll see if I can get some after work tomorrow.

I promise there will be pictures tomorrow!! Although I honestly can't promise how good they will be. I can hardly COUNT all of them let alone take a picture of them lol!!! And just like that I'm in love. I want massive tanks filled with these guys.

Perlumia, I buy from Invertebrates by Msjinkxd. She is a hobbyist turned importer/breeder. Not only does she do shrimps, snails, and crabs, but she also specializes in microfish and just plain hard to find fish. Excellent turnaround time, too. I emailed her about these guys on Sunday and got them on Tuesday.

Yay tank bred cardinals! Sucks about the DOA, but still sounds like you made out ok otherwise.

Since you're now in love does that mean no black neons in the tank? Or are you still debating?
