Can't wait to see pictures! :)

Do be careful with dwarf gouramis - 1 in 5 carry irridovirus, which is a fatal disease that can be transferred to other fish. Be extremely careful with your sourcing, or consider a different type such as the honey gourami. :)

Okay! The tank is all set up and I got so mad at the bubbles this morning that I just had to take my sponge and wipe the ones in the front away. THIS IS NOT THE FINISHED PRODUCT. I'm probably going to get a tall plant in the back left corner, a hanging plant, and maybe a rock thing in the front right corner. And, of course, it won't be done until I get the three gouramis and the five guppies that I'm planning on!

It's probably sideways in your album. :)

Love the setup! There won't be room for three gouramis, though - they are relatively territorial and will probably come to blows in such a limited space. 1 gourami and 5 guppies will stock you.

Okay. Would I be able to do two gouramis and three guppies or something? I have plenty of time. I see that you're from Australia. Here in the U.S., we have a huge snow storm, so I can't drive anywhere for a while. Wish I was with you!

I live in the ACT, which is not exactly a sunny paradise. :p It's dry and dusty in summer, and freezing in winter. Autumn, which it is right now, is temporarily pleasant, but it won't last. :p

I'm honestly not sure on how two gouramis would get on in that tank - I'd start a thread asking about it in the Other Fish section of the forum, and maybe PM Olympia. :)

Thanks! I wish it was fall. Right now it is early spring and it is snowing like crazy. I already have at least 6 inches.

Oswald - Blue Halfmoon Male

Yeah. Everything I've recently heard says so. I can't wait to stock up! I'm planning to go to petco on Wednesday, but my school had a snow day today and the roads actually aren't that bad. I might go today if I'm lucky! Thanks for all of the help to make this possible!
