Yeah, the plants really do help with the quality of the water. One reason why i will always love live plants, there are almost no downsides. I hope the plants in the back will grow a bit more, I want just a bit more height in the back since the crypts are pretty tall, which still provides good cover for the fish.

Who can't? They actually school together (Unlike neons and cardinals) and they have awesome markings!rummy_nose_tetra.jpg

You're actually getting two different kinds of rummynoses. It's pretty confusing because one source considers hemigrammus rhodostomus to be the "true" rummynose while another book considers hemigrammus bleheri to be the true rummynose. Either way, you're getting five of each and really, unless you know what to look for, you can't tell the difference. Just some very subtle differences in the red markings.

And yup, these guys definitely school together. They tried to school with my betta for a while. They'll just spend all day going back and forth in a big group, cruising the plants. I'm so happy that they're going to go to such a nice tank.

So even though they are two different types of rummynoses the still school together? I wanted the rummynoses so bad ever since I saw them school, I can't believe I am getting some! Thanks again Sakura!
