Well it appears that I am down to only 3 Neon Tetra's 2 more dead today . Strange thing is I could never ever keep them alive. Even years ago when I had tanks they would always die. SOOOOO no more damn Neon Tetra's. More room for healthier fish I suppose.

at keeping them,and then that's it. !

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.

On a different note... I hope these Dwarf Sagittaria I get will stay short. I wanna use them in the front area of my tank (fingers crossed). Ive done alot of reading and it seems that it is 50/50 on them staying short 3 to 4 inches - or growing large up to 20 inches. Ive read that in low light they grow tall trying to get closer to the light and I've read that they stay short with low light. I suppose time will tell. I guess I need to get them here first hahaha.

I talked to the seller today and he said...... high light short, low light tall. Now I have to figure out if my light(stock Lighting) is low or high. When will it ever end hahahaha. I am guessing low(48" Sun Glow 40 watt Reflected) what does everyone think ?
