5 long finned leopard danios
6 porkchop/copper rasboras
3 bushynose plecs
3 juvenile angels
8 cories
3 yoyo loaches

1 male betta
9 ember tetras
4 pygmy cories

Very very cool!! May I give you a tip? Now I am my NO means a photographer. uh,uh... no way. But if you take your photos at night all the room and window glare is gone. Turn off ALL the room lights and any TV in the room, then just use the tank lights.

Beautiful tanks! I think I need to google the shell dwellers tho. Edit... OK Those are COOL!! Do you have to give them lots of shells because they like to change and move around? Or they are fussy and need more then one present to pick the one they like?

Ya i probably should of waited 2 take the pics. I think if u give them like 1 than they will go into it because it is the only 1 there. But from what i noticed is they tend 2 stay in 1 shell then after a little they move 2 another 1. The male also is trying the caves in the rocks. So i think they like 2 move around a little and see which 1 they like the most. Also if u want to breed them than more shells will make them happier, which in return lead the fish 2 breed. They r pretty aggressive though; there was 5 white cloud minnows as a dither, cus they used to be very shy. And now there is 1 :( They defend there shells, even when not breeding. There r 12 shells that they can go into but 16 total, plus 4 caves with the rocks. So there is around 16-20 hiding places for them. Thx for the compliments on the tanks and the tip.
