I have added a picture of my tank to My Aquarium. I do not know how to put a picture in this thread. I believe I need more plants. This picture does not show the Water Sprite. Any help with placement to protect my fish would be great. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That is a nice start. The three plants along the front are Java Fern. These should not be buried in the gravel, the rhizome (the thick "stem/root" from which the true roots and leaves grow) may rot if buried. It is best to attach these to rock or wood. I like to stick the rhizome into a crevice in a piece of wood, or you can use black cotton thread.

Some more wood would be good. I like Malaysian Driftwood, it has others names sometimes, it is very dark brown and heavy so it immediately sinks. Some pieces (all are different, being true wood) have tunnels and crevices which is good for many fish. The long pieces can be stood vertically to resemble tree trunks. Have a look at the photos of my tanks, this wood is in all of them. Petsmart usually carries this wood, and other stores.

And more floating plants, lots of floating plants.

Byron,

I took another picture of my Aquarium today and put it in the same place as the other picture. It shows the Water Sprite and I have a background up. I will add more plants though.

Update. I returned the two Neons and stocked 6 Cherry Barbs last night. 2 males and 4 females. I am going to try to find another female today so I have 7. They seem fine together.

To answer your earlier question which I missed (sorry), how to add photos in posts.

When you type a new post, in the area below the window under the blue bar headed "Additional Options" there is a button "Manage Attachments." Click on that, and a small window will pop-up. Click on "Browse" to find the picture on your computer (it must be a jpg file) and double click that. Then click the "Upload" button in the small window, and it will.
