Really? Wow :P I thought I had 60 at the most... Now I believe I have more... I'd update to a bigger tank, except for the fact I have 900NT to my name (27.3USD) and the next step up in a tank would be 1500NT (45.5USD) so I'm stuck. However, I do get a small 2 hour a week job starting december. I get 500NT (15.7USD) per hour. Though I shouldn't really be allowed to work because I'm not 18 yet. (minimum work age here)

Haha, i just made a spontaneous decision to DIY a CO2 system for my 10 gallon xD

So i bought a pepsi bottle xD and yeast and 3 java moss's and 2 other things that I dont know because its all in chinese... but they look like some kinda moss, I believe it to be the type that has a lot of bubbles stuck in it when it gets healthy?

I got 4 CAEs which I will give back to the store when they get bigger and swap for smaller ones. Hmm...
All together Prices

4 Chinese Algae Eaters for 100NT (3USD, 1.5Pounds)
3 Javas for 120 NT (3.6USD, 1.8Pounds)
2 Other Plant for 78 NT (2.36USD, 1.18Pounds)
1 Small CO2 Diffusor 99NT (3USD, 1.5Pounds)

How does that compare to the US or UK? Cheap or Expensive or Same?

the fish seem cheap, as well as the java moss.

ive seen it go for like $4 (USD) a clump one of my fish stores, except they give it free to me.. be careful buying un-identified plants as you cannot be sure it is fully aquatic. i know fish stores here in the US do that to scam people of their money, or they simply dont know any better.

and bravo on your english

hello and welcome. :)
your guppys are truley beautiful,the tank is very pretty.

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.

Thank You Willow =D

OneFish, Thank you for your feedback about the prices :)
and also for the compliment on my english, I was in AP English Lit after all... that and I'm half british =P

Anyway, I've set up my CO2 system. (pepsi bottle, yeast, carbon dioxide, air stopper thing, bubble counter (thats what its called in chinese anyway), and the carbon diffuser. I cant seem to get anything through the diffuser... It doesnt let air through, even if I blow directly into the silicon tubing with all my might... :(

Any Ideas?
