NPT Sorority tank progress

Here is our 29 gal sorority tank with all the plants and fish it is going to house, I hope lol. I need to take a pic or 2 during feeding time it is so hard to get a pic with all of the girls showing at once. We might add a few more temple plants because they are really good at sucking up ammonia and nitrates or is it nitrites, well one of the 2, hopefully someone will correct me I am sure now enough of my raving and on with the pics.

Your girls are gorgeous! Be careful with these sororities, if you get it just right, and all your girls are happy, get along, and are healthy, it will be a very addicting experience! I find myself always looking at what i know I can't have as my 36 has about reached its carrying capacity! Feeding time is the best time because then you get the little cheese balls who absolutely are little piggies, and jump out of the water for their food. I feed mine micro crickets occasionally and boy do they love that! I have a few bottom feeders who enjoy zucchini and occasionally I'll have a few girls gnaw at it, and its cute to watch! Your tank looks amazing! It looks so much bigger then a 29. How many girls are you housing?(:

Rainbow sharks need at least a 55 gallon tank.

No they atleast need 30, 55 gal would be ideal, He actually came with that tank, I bought the tank off of craigslist, I guess I might move him to my bigger tank but he seems perfectly happy in that tank with the girls
