    Looking good! It will look really natural when it all grows in (y)

    How about a school of Ember Tetras? I do like Harlequin Rasboras though so playful and a very good schooling fish :D

    I'm not a big fan of straight yellow fish swimming around. Eg Serpe Tetra. A good mix of colors pleases me.

    The jungle look is amazing right now! Thanks all for the help, especially from Keith. (y)

    Lucas I would be looking at schooling Cardinal Tetras and the basic Red Cherry Shrimp main reason both have strong coloring's and would be a contract to all your rocks and green plant.

    Plants are looking great! The monte carlo looks fabulous, and the others are fitting in nicely. I've also got a new mini aquarium setup.

    @J Art More like 2.5 cups. They are super petite. And thanks @Wako for the comment!

    Time will tell if things will grow. It is still too soon. Those pretty leaves still belong to me

    All I can say about that small tank why have you used such a big rock for such a small tank, one reason it takes up a lot of water capacity.

    That is a good reason then.

    2.5 cups would be about 600ml is that correct?

    Is that actual capacity?

    Hi Lucas
    You have done a fantastic job there. Your aquarium is looking great. Your driftwood is nice but what amazes more is that all single stones look very natural (nicely done).
    Just one thing, Are you going to use black background instead of using frosted vinyl?

    Lucas all I every do is keep pushing hard with suggestions and remind the member of my Signature "Near enough is not good enough, therefore good enough is not near enough, and only your best will do. Keith: many years ago" I learnt my trade that way and taught the same way.

    I get the pleasure of seeing the member progressing far beyond they thought possible.

    I'm just realizing how great things are turning out! No plants are straight up dying, and a large majority have new growth! I just did the first trim, and everything is looking good.
