Corydoras hastatus and Platy additions :) (56K-no no)

I recently added 2 Corydoras hastatus to my fish family and they are so adorable, so I thought I'd share some pictures. They are currently living in my 3g planted tank that I have recently redone until they get a bit bigger. I know what you are thinking....cories live in shoals! I hope to pick up atleast 6 more next week when the store gets more in...maybe even 8 more....and if I can't get them from the store, I'll buy some online. I'll keep them in the 3g until they grow a bit and then either upgrade their tank to a 5.5g or even a 10g....we'll see. They are about 1/2" or so now, so are really small.

Anywho...here are some pictures:

And their tank:

They are on the right side. If you know how small HC (the foreground plant) is, then you can get an idea of their size. And keep in mind the tank is 3g, so not very big at all. I can't wait to get more.

I also added 6 Platies to my 29g tank, but they are so hard to take pictures of! I have never kept livebearers before (suprisingly) in my 4 years of fishkeeping, but they were so pretty that I finally gave in.

Here are the few pictures I could get of them (sorry they are not clear!):

Sunburst platy (I got 2 of these guys)

Blue Platy

Sunburst and another Platy (forgot which type it was)

Everyone is settling in nicely!

2 planted tanks: 40g, 20g ; 38g Reef tank

Ugh, I just love the cories! Their tank is beeeyoootiful, too.

I really like platies, too--yours are lovely. They look nice and healthy--

Very nice!

Remember that Darwin was mostly right!
