They are cherry barbs. Update: I moved the lotus plants back a little and removed the HC.


How come you removed the baby tears?

Wasn't able to root properly because of the Cory cats. I am buying a bag of Miracle Grow Organic Choice Potting Soil tomorrow and starting an emersed setup to grow it properly since my leftover AquaSoil is tainted with spidermites. I hope to fill my 10g with HC so I can harvest from there.

Updated a layout of what I will be doing over the next couple weeks. I am not very pleased with the Cabomba pulcherrima as it is messy, grows funny after being trimmed, and stays leggy even under high light. I am assuming the Lobelia cardinalis will take off at some point so it can be incorporated in the scape, as well as the Blyxa japonica.

This picture is just before I tore out the Cabomba and the Rotala macrandra.

I added Myriophyllum mattegrossense, Rotala sp. Vietnam, and Heteranthera zosterifolia right after the auction last weekend. The tank is kinda hodge podge for the moment until the new plants start to grow, but it won't take long.

What are those plants called on page 6? I love the brightness of green it provides, I'll buy the lot from you if for sale... Tagging along with the build and love the new change!

That was Echinodorus tenellus. I actually do not have that plant anymore, sorry.

This was a beautiful tank and one of the threads I really enjoyed watching. I wish OP would get back into the hobby.
