They really did, I'm so happy about that! =)

So, on the matter of keeping guppies with them, I think the normal fancies are too big and too boisterous. What do you think about Endlers Livebearers, maybe five of them, in there? I only really see my pretty little shrimp when I feed them now, they just love sitting in those plants. Sometimes they swim by or hang out on one of the leaves. lol Without fish it really just looks like a tank of plants with a big red ramshorn traveling around everywhere. I love that snail. >>; At the moment he's climbing up the front of the tank with one of my big red female shrimp on his back, now that is funny!

Do you think Endlers would be alright in there? .-. I've always wanted some as is, they're awful hard to find, but I recently found someone who is a good provider, he usually has some juveniles about 1/2-3/4 a inch, usually the more common blue, green, red and black ones like this: http://www.seriouslyfish.com/wp-cont...gei_male_2.jpg
I think ones that color would look good with the lighter substrate and all the green, but I dunno. Maybe I should try to find some of the red or gold? I'm usually terrible at putting fish with the right colored decorations, but I think they'd be lovely regardless. I've wanted some for about fifteen years now, but they really are hard to find here! I figure this is a good chance to get a few. lol Or would they prefer a 20 gallon? I'm debating on kicking my breeding projects until I can get a second 55 gallon and just turning the twenty into either a ram or tetra tank, now maybe endlers since I found a provider finally...but having some in the ten would look great, but would it BE great for them, enough room and such?

Personally, I think a few endlers in there would do! I could also see a school of pygmy rasboras or ember tetra.. Anything small really - ohhh, pygmy corydoras...

Ohoho, no. I don't know a thing about Rasboras, but as for the pygmy cories...I wouldn't do that either. Small though they are, they really shouldn't be kept in tanks smaller than 15-20 gallons, same with all types of tetra in my personal opinion. ^^; But if I recall correctly the male endlers don't even get an inch long, females get about an inch and would be fine in a well planted tank. I guess I'll find out. I hate keeping things in small spaces, I'm always buying "Small" things for the smaller tanks, glaring at it and then moving them to the bigger tanks, so if I don't like it, I'll probably clear out my twenty and move them there. lol
