3 month update! Almost where I want it

Well, I bought my tank on April 18 and had it set up shortly after. It has really come together the way I had hoped and I have almost checked everything off of my stock list.

Stock list: 4 Neon Tetra, 5 Diamond Tetra, 7 Harlequin Rasbora, 3 Black Neon Tetra, 3 Oto Catfish, and 1 German Blue Ram, unknown number of MTS

Wish list: 5 Panda Corydoras

Here are the pics!

The back left corner is bare and empty. I intend on planting one more amazon sword to fill it in. Unless y'all have a better suggestion!

Looking good! Swords would be nice to fill in your space or a bunch of Wisteria.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Nice aquascape, I like that. Well done. That back corner you mentioned, one suggestion would be a chunk of wood, not too big, but long and straight. Sort of like a standing tree trunk. It would conceal the equipment and I think flow into the other piece nicely.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
