Difficult choices to be made later!
Last mid-top school to add will either be Longfish Rosy Barbs, Bleeding Heart Tetras or Congo Tetras.

Bottom choices will probably be both albino and emerald cories. Atleast 6 of each.

OMG, I been missing so much about your interesting tank but thankfully, I caught up!
Congrats on the dirt bottom and I love the way that you aquascaped it, it still had the old jungley feel but also has a touch of the Amazon... It AWESOME!
Those albinos look really cute and active, I hope they do well for you in the QT so you can move them over to the display tank - and pronto! We need to see some substrate movement in there! But, sorry about not getting your first choices, but I do think the albinos will work just as well!
I think that a shoal of barbs, hmm, what about five band barb or golden barbs, I think they would do well and contrast well with the other fishes you have in there... choices, choices, choices, I can totally see why people have MTS!
Looking forward to seeing more!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Thanks Aussie!
These guys are so freaking cute. The smallest is 1/2" and the largest is just under a inch. They managed to scare the living crap outta me sleeping sorta sideways. Lol. But they're doing okay so far. Looking less pathetic in the QT than they did at Petco. I feel bad cause I think I just realized there was maybe 7 of them and I only got 6. So there's 1 all alone. Almost tempted to go see if he's still there.

They're also so entertaining to watch. Love watching them sift through the substrate and swim around. I forgot just how adorable cories are. Always knew they were cute. But even cuter once you get em

So I've decided that I'm tired of waiting on these guys to drop their "tubes" down. I have given them names and if they turn out to be opposite genders, I'll change the name to suit them.

This angel will be dubbed Elsa. After the main character in the movie Frozen.



This one is dubbed Smokey. It's a nice gender neutral name. So it'll be keeping this name.



This is Gaston. I chose this name because it closely resembles the character. Does a lot of showing off and is a little butthead to everyone.



This is Figaro



Lumiere



Casper



And Pumbaa
Because he's a pig and is a push over.

Thank you
I am actually hoping to keep Elsa, Lumiere and Gaston names because it best suits them.
