Yeah. I really like heavily planted tanks with small schooling fish with bright colors swimming in and out of the plants. It just looks so comfy to me. Lol

Came home from That pet place today with a few questions.

Are all "sword" plants from the Amazon?
Are all cory cats from the Amazon?
Are glowlight tetras (Hemigrammus erythrozonus) found in the Amazon?

No, not all swords are in the amazon. I think most cories are in the amazon. Not sure about glow lights. Amazon swords are from amazon ( Lol ).

There are sword plants from different areas like the brazil sword. Cories and glow lights don't all live in the amazon. I believe some cories are found in Peru

Thanks. Looks like glowlights can be found there "Guyana, Essequibo river. Other reports also include the Amazon river system, Rio Sao Francisci and Rio Paraguay"

I think I'm going to go with albino cories, if I do get cories.

Still have a lot to learn about the plants.

Thanks for sharing! I have not seen several of those links. I like the idea of biotopes as well. Very natural to me. My reef tank is a variety of things from all over the world, but I wanted to do this for freshwater.

I like list 3 especially if it had some hatchet fish in there

I just found this:http://fish.mongabay.com/data/ecosys...on%20River.htm

But because it doesn't have common names, I have to through it one by one.....
