Endler/Cory Tank re-do (image heavy)

My 16 gallon plant re-do and my Endler's Livebearers:

The Endler's are very busy little guys. They're SO teeny. Some are smaller then others. I see them going through the plants and eating something. I don't know what it is. Lol. Maybe infusoria? They look and look and the they hit and eat. One of them is missing his dorsal fin. I'll be keeping an eye on him.





You can see the top Endler has some guppy in him. HUGE dorsal!








A snail that lives in Whiskey's tank. He looks like a dog. He's very cute!

16 Gallon-4 Corys, 3 Endler's, 5 Celestial Pearl Danios
10 Gallon: Male King Betta-Kilo
5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey
5 Gallon: Male VT-Tango

Great job....I love what you did and I really like those Endlers...awesome fish...yours are so pretty and one looks almost tiger striped.....

My water wisteria (Hygrophila difformis) grows like mad and I get lots of new plants from just a leaf too, all I do is let the leaf float for 7-10 days and it will sprout roots. Do you propagate yours like that too?

I do. I have rooting leaves floating all over. The biggest one in the back I've had for over a year. The smaller ones in the middle I just ordered because my big guy is starting to slow down. But I can't count how many plants I've gotten from just that one wisteria. He's done his job well. :)

I've been wanting Endler's for about a year now. I'm so happy to have them. :) They make the tank look huge. Lol!

Do it! :D And take lots of pics! :D

I'm trying to identify and name them by their coloring. So far there's No Dorsal, Big Dorsal, Tiger Stripe, and Speck. Lol!

They're really neat. They learned about cory pellets this morning and it's so cute to see these tiny things trying to get in among my big corys. They're a pretty good cleanup crew just themselves.

I don't really mind that mine were crossed. Since I have no females, I won't be repeating that mistake. :P I just hope they stay tiny. *fingers crossed*
