The fish are here ! the fish are here

I got 6 bloodfin tetras , 4 julii cory catfish and 1 golden mystery snail for the 15 gallon tank at home.

This tank has a new hood with a slightly pinkish light. The pinkish light is bringing up the color of the bloodfins very well .. I am surprised why I never gave bloodfins a thought -they seem wonderful fish !

The julii cories always stay in a group and are cute -- always active and looking for food

Snail is about 1 inch in diameter -- but stays near the plants. This worries me as to the snail eating the plants, otherwise it is very interesting to watch !!

Mystery snails can eat plants, so I would look out for that. Otherwise, congrats to your new fish !

Exciting! Just keep an eye on your water after adding all those fish at once and do water changes right anyway if you get any ammonia or nitrites.
