Thanks to liz! I got some new pretty plants for my tanks! The java ferns are old as well as the old looking driftwood on the side. Just enjoying the leaves moving in the current so far!
The rocks are black with *glow in the dark* (white) mixed in. They don't really glow anymore... Sad anyways here's the tank!

The Echinodorus looks great! What a nice set-up. It looks perfect for some tiny cherry shrimp. Very Happy

Thanks guys! I really want shrimp, but I'm afraid id kill them! I had a pair of ghost shrimp for about a month before they passed away, but that was years ago! I was thinking maybe neons or something small like danios.... and a pair of teeny catfish....

Ghost shrimp do not live long. Caridina shrimp can live for two years. I have two in my ten gallon right now. Shrimpy and Shorty are their names. It remains to be seen if they can survive with the Hara jerdoni; do not know if tiny catfish will try to catch shrimp.
Very Happy

Just from my own experience I think a ten gallon is too small for neons. They tend to come down with wasting disease in a small tank. Danios usually need lots of swimming space - a ten gallon is only 20 inches long. Altho' from what I've seen of them, the glo-fish danios don't seem to be as fast. I'm going to get Celestial Pearl Danios (Danio margaritatus) to go with the Hara in the ten gallon. They like cooler water. You would like the looks of the CPDs I'm sure.

The micro rasboras are neat, too.

What about a dwarf frog or two?

Some Celestial Pearl Danios would be nice in there. I never had much luck with live plants, I should try again. Your tanks looks great BTW.

You need a really fast shutter speed to catch good photos of schooling fish. Good luck!
