Its not over till the opera lady sings >D
As you can tell by my happiness, i got a 20 gallon tank, live plants, a pair of fishies, ext.
Well, its all set up, i put the girl in the wittle jar (o-o frappaccino jar- eh i like coffee ) and he flared at her she flared back so everything seems okay.
Im breeding Grapefruit (VT yellow) and Lemon (CT yellow) so i cant really tell if she is showing stripes- i hope though x3

I put bubblewrap up at the top for now, ill get a styrofoam cup tomorrow and put it in instead =D

the fish look amazing! smart match!

2 things to the tank though that id change;
firstly, id remove the gravel. if spawn fall on it it will be hard for the male to pick them up from the ground. and secondly id throw in more plants.

Maybe you should lower the water level a bit too so he won't be as stressed.

they are beautiful and also why are there so many bubbles on the inside of the border of the tank?

also i agree with shibadibadoo and Neelie lower the water and remove the gravel because it will cause problems as they stated...other than that good luck and good job!!!!
