Lots of New Fish!

My favorite fish store had a 50% off all fish and plants, so I stocked up... I got 7 ember tetras, 7 cardinal tetras, 1 male betta, 1 nerite snail, and 2 leopard veil angelfish! That was about $120 worth of fish I was very happy! I want to go back tomorrow and get some Boraras brigittae. They're $1.75!!! Oh, and I'm getting a bunch of plants as well So excited I'll have some pictures up soon! Just wanted to say the good news and post pictures!

That sounds awesome! Some of those nano fish can be rather difficult to find at an lfs, its awesome that you came across them! Try to get some pictures when you can.

Haha, I'm trying to see if my friend is going because if she is I'm tagging along and getting plants. A miracle has happened in my 55g! My betta and two angels are getting along! My betta has been in there for a while and has definitely mellowed out, I was going to test it out and I have a back up for the betta if something happens and they've all gotten along for the past hour and a half, two hours! Fingers crossed. Pictures up soon, trying to figure out our new camera

Ok, here are some pictures! 2 of my cardinals died last night, they didn't look too good when I got them so I'm thinking that the stress got to them... So I exchanged them and ended up by chili rasboras as well ... oh, and some moneywort, thought about italian vals but I didn't get them. Here are some pictures:

Chili Rasboras:


Ember Tetras:


I hope to have some pictures of the cardinals and angels later on

Awesome. The embers look pretty good. They look amazing in a planted tank. I love your chilis too.

Thanks! It was hard trying to take a picture of the chilis! They're so tiny and so cute!!!

Yeah, I have had troubles getting pictures of my nano fish too. They are too tiny/fast for the camera to focus on. Let us all know how well all the fish do.
