Started adding live stock today.
Started with a bottle of tetra safestart which I have used twice in the past on my other tank with great success.
I decided on Harlequin Rasboras, rather than the minnows. One reason being the temperature of the water, and the main reason, I didn't want baby minnows to overtake the tank. Supposedly the rasboras are a little harder to breed, so I won't need to worry about that.
Anyway I went to 3 different fish stores, the first one had a whole tank of rasboras last time I was there 2 weeks ago, they were completely out. Went to petco, they don't carry them.
Went to petsmart and got the last 2 they had. I had planned on 3-4 to start cycling the tank with the TSS, as I know they do better in bigger groups. My end goal is to have 6-8, with the one betta, and some RCS, and maybe a nerite to control algae.
I acclimated them for two hours just to be safe since my water is pretty hard, and they are now exploring their new home, always by each others side.
