So here's what's going on.I added a group of Neon Tetras and a group of Gold Pristella Tetras.After breakfast I'm going to the lfs to order Boesemann Rainbows that will be here tomorrow.I wasn't too sure about the Gold Pristellas when I saw them at the store but after they got settled in I love 'em and the Neons really pop in the all black set-up.Can't wait to get the Boesemanns in there,I'll have more pics soon.

Your's truly,
Lee

what an awsome job,please keep up with the pictures,
fab choice on background,those fish are really going to stand out.
:)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

update-new pics

Just a quick update.Everything looking good.some plants showing slower growth than others but that's to be expected.I'm most impressed by the Nymphea Stellata(Dwarf Lily).It was just a bulb with a couple of leaves sprouting out when it went in and you can see the growth in a short period of time.Also got my Boesemanni Rainbows and I love 'em.

Quick update,everything is coming along nicely.The Dwarf Lily has reached the top of the tank.Unfortunately I lost one my Boesemann Rainbows.But the Gold Pristella Tetras spawned and I saw a fry today hiding behind one of the Marimo Balls.I'll post some new pics when I get a chance.

Your's truly,
