15 gallon. 2 Small HOBs. 75 watt heater (I think). 6 Male threadfin rainbows (can't find females for love or money). 8 cherry shrimp, 3 ottos, 1 Mystery Snail.

Plants: Hornwort, Rotala indica, Ludwegia repens, Saggitaria subulata, Cryptocoryne wendtii var Red and var Tropica, Hygrophilia polysperma, and Java Moss.

Thanks much. This is my 5 year old's tank. She wanted an Amano (that one!) if I could arrange it, and while this isn't that, it's doing fairly well.

I am not going to pay more for shipping than for fish. No way, no how. And while that limits the credibility of my whinging, I do not believe that I waive my right thereto thereby.

Frankly, I am not too worried about it. At some point I am going to try and breed the little buggers, though, and then I'll take another look at the whole thing.

Gorgeous tank! It's nice to see someone else keeping threadfins. I think I may have gotten lucky and ended up with 1 female in the 12 I bought, but it may just be a still undeveloped male.

If they do breed though, I'll surely send females some your way. You're cool with paying shipping if that *is* the cost of the fish, right? lol

I notice females tend to be in demand yet very little supply. I only obtained two when I bought a group of these before.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
