Looks nice, but a couple of those plants aren't full aquatics... What livestock are you considering?

Gracias!

Yeah I found that out after the fact. I have some more fully aquatics coming in the mail from AZ Gardens (awesome place) somtime next week and will be getting rid of the ones that aren't full aquatics. For now my mystery snails are happy to munch on the not fully aquatics...they don't mess with the true aquatics at all though which is great.

Trying to keep everything small as possible due to the tank size.
1x male betta
3x zebra danio
2x cory catfish
2x mystery snails
2x ghost shrimp

Also i'm babysitting 3x Emperor Tetras (I believe that's what they are) that were shipped to my house while a friend is out of town...they are leaving in a couple days for a much larger tank w/ large shoal..they are awesome to watch...wish they were staying.

I also think I'm going to have to give away one of my 2 mystery snails to my bro for his big tank, the one snail is on roids, he has doubled in size in 3 weeks, the other one is staying close to it's original size, for now at least he/she's good.

Danios do much better in groups of at least 6, so I'd probably drop them and just go with the Betta and cories...
