Pearl Gourami mine is one of my favorite fish. This one has such a sweet demeanor though I did have a Hellion Killer Pearl Gourami, which I pretty much sorry to use the word, hated...he had to go.

I bought a piece of slate for my bolivians to spawn on. Hopefully that will help them be more successful. With my luck they won't even spawn on it though... I also got six otos. What fun little guys! I'm really liking them. I'm hoping they will all make it since I hear they often die in the first month or so. They seem to have acclimated well though and are busy eating algae.

I luv my otos n havent had a problem with them.. i had rescued them from a tank that had 6 really really dead tiger barbs n it the girl just thre the otos n to clean up her tank ddnt notice the barbs were dead. I actually found them n took the otos home with me after they were n that nasty tank water for a few hours.. so good luck

Should look nice once the water clears though.
Curious to know what plants and fish you have

Made a Java Moss screen/background

I finally made one, been meaning to do this for soooo many months!!!

Then I found i didn't have the right spot for it, a little large, the plant leaves are in the way now, its been so long, lol, but shoved it in a different tank anyway!

Sewed the moss onto a plastic craft needlepoint panel with fishing line. Rinsed it and then stuffed it in the back of the tank. Used the black plastic mesh. I have 6" circles which I need to make, originally got the circles to put in the back of my 6.6 Edge for my shrimp.

Check that one off the list with only minutes to spare
