Updated 55 gallon Community

Hey guys,
I updated my 55 gallon community tank. Took out the old fake tree stump and added a nice Manzanita branch and also the Amazon sword on the right side. I had to weigh the manzanita down with some rocks to keep it from floating.

i must be doing something wrong lol.

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.

aww thanks,but my main tank i feel is a let down,but it's not the right time
for me to do anything about it,but on the bright side my firemouth babies are free swimming
and holding their own around the tank.

That's what I thought!! COOL! How do you like them? Kymmie and I have been going back and forth via PM discussing the Congo Tetra. I am in the process of upgrading my 55g to a 120g and she recommended a school of them. I like them a lot. Did you get them from you LFS or an online dealer?

They are one of my favorite tetra. They get a good size on them so a 120 would be great for them. I got them from the LFS.

Darn. I have a feeling my LFS isn't gonig to sell them. They aren't the best and usually have slim pickings. I'm in the process of trying to find a good online dealer.

You could ask them if they could order some for you.
