Oh i love those harlequin rasboras. They are expensive in my lfs though so am waiting when i am richer. Lol. But your tank is much more lush looking with new crypts in there. So natural looking. That is why i love it.

I have to say they are my favorite schooling fish. I just love their coloring. I payed $5 each for them but I think they are totally worth it.

I love mine... they are great for mid/upper level activity, at least in my tank.

I had to laugh (and almost cry) at that last part. I would've never paid $5 for a fish. 4 months ago I set up a SW nano-reef, and now see that and say "Good Lord.... I wish I could find anything for $5, let alone a fish" It's amazing how fast perspective changes.

You guys have to pay $5 for Harlequin Rasboras? Wow. They are $1.49 at Petco here. Always on sale. Great little fish.

Something happened to this tank. I'm thinking the dirt substrate was too thick. In a matter of weeks I lost all the cories, 2 harlequins and my plaket betta. The crypts started to melt, the sword was withering and there was BBA everywhere! So a tore it down, cleaned it and now it looks like this.

It now houses 20 or so Hongi fry.

Cute little buggers they are. Future plans for this tank involve a total rescape and the addition of these guys.

They are called 'rose endlers' and I'm hoping to get a good population of them going. At the moment they are hanging out in a 5g critter keeper waiting for the hongi to get big enough or for me to set up another tank for them.
