Sorority coming today! I've set up an NPT for them.

I'm incredibly excited about my sorority arriving. It should be here today or tomorrow--seven beautiful females of all different colors imported from Taiwain.

I originally thought I would put the girls in my Fluval Edge 12g, but I became increasingly concerned that the height-over-width factor would lead to problems. I went ahead and bought a 20-gallon long yesterday, filled the base with clay from my backyard, set it up with loads of plants, and think I am ready to go! Here's a picture of the tank head-on as of this morning. Pictures from the sides to follow. :)

Had I realized I was going to buy a larger tank when I bid on the girls, I would have bought two or four more.

Had I realized, though, that I was going to place the tank where I ended up putting it, I would have bought a bigger tank, too.

I think this will be a nice sorority, though, and I'm pretty proud of it for it being set up only since last night!

at least now when you see a girl you HAVE to have then you'll have a nice home for her that isn't over crowded!!

The plants should fill in nicely while you're QTing the girls!!

GIVING AWAY PLANTS? REAL OR FAKE, I'LL TAKE THEM

3 males: Mardi (OHM) - Mason (HMPKCTEE) - Maddux (HMPK)
1 female: Mercedes (Undecided again) Maybe VT or Delta

is the tank cycled yet? If not be sure to keep a close eye on the water parameters until it cycles. You may get sudden ammonia or nitrate spikes which can be harmful to the lucky ladies. Be diligent with your water changes if there is any changes in levels. but hopefully the plants take care of all that for you

Thank you! I sorted those rocks from cheap $4-a-huge-bag pea gravel from Home Depot. :)
