I pulled the DOA out as soon as I saw the poor thing, and the others perked right up. He looked like he'd been dead for a few hours. But I'm still pretty sure I have 12 live ones.

... I don't know about the black neons. Since the cardinals are still very unsure of themselves they are shoaling rather tightly, and it makes me think I will have room for black neons. But I know the cardinals will grow and begin to explore the tank more on their own in the coming weeks. Right now the option is certainly still on the table. It looks like I will either get another 6 cardinals or a shoal of 12 black neons.

Boxer, I bought them from Invertebrates by Msjinkxd. I've bought from her twice and been super happy with my purchases both times!

Congratulations on the new arrivals, Izzy! So exciting!!! It's so sad that one of them didn't make it, but it sounds like the others are doing well. *GRINS* Can't wait to see them once they get used to things and settled in.

As promised these are the best pictures I can get of the little buggers! They are so fast. Forget counting them let alone photographing them!













Oh! And you can play spot the farlowella in some of them! I did have to edit these pictures to make them lighter.

BEAUTIFUL!!! Dude. If I die, and I get a chance, I wanna come back as a fish and live in your tank, k? I'm pretty sure I'd like it there. Love the shots - just the little flashes of blue that show up against the green are gorgeous! Everyone settling in well?

OMG I so agree with cheshera!!!
BTW, what are the plastic boxes for in the tank??? If you already said this, sorry

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Lovely! Even on a small screen the blue color pops. Your plants are heavenly, too.

Thank you so much for your complements, everyone!! I am so pleased with the way this is coming together. It's come so far from what it was a year ago today.

Yes they are! I was so tired last night that I forgot to mention I feed them for the first time. Those little blue streaks took to it perfectly! I should have known from the way my farlowella took to sinking wafers on the first day, that these little guys would gobble up pellets like there is no tomorrow (farlowella and cardinals came from the same seller).

Oh no worries! I might have told some people but I haven't said anything here. Those are my two halfmoon bettas. They came from the tank that is now the shrimp tank. They were supposed to go to a girl my mom is tutoring who loves animals. But her father died last Sunday, so they will be spending more time with me.

He is actually in two of them. The first one and the third one. The pictures are a little dark so he's rather hard to see, but he's in the same position in both pictures.

I see him! I had to wait until I was on the laptop, though. Thanks for the link; I will browse her site (and dream...).

Plummy
