Thanks! I added my color max bulb today. Can't wait to see my fish in there under the light! I should get my other day light next week. I'm guess the plants will do fine. Keeping fingers crossed!

I have added the driftwood and my plants!! I checked my water levels again today and my cycle is done. Yay! I moved my pleco over to see how he would do and will slowly add a few fish at a time. Trying to decide what to add. My daughter convinced me to keep our 10g running and out it in her room.
We will keep our 3 guppies, 2 glofish and 1 betta in the 10.

The 20g will start out with our pleco and our two platys. I really want a pair of GBRs and a school of some kind

I don't think so.

Java fern, anubias, most species of moss would look nice on the (Mopani?) DW you have.

We went to the local pet shop and picked up 4 albino cory cats and three tiger barbs (that is all they had) we are acclimating them and adding them to our tank today! Our frogs should be here Thursday and the pet shop is ordering our German blue rams!!! Yay

You've been busy. Aside from the shrimp and snails I bought this year, last October I purchased 6 longfin danios and 3-4 years ago i got 4 gold tetras. Still have them. Spent more on plants and plant related supplies.

Question: Will the frogs be okay with the tiger barbs?

The barbs are still small. And inch each, maybe less. So far they have been very calm and keeping to themselves. I hope they are oak with the frogs. Guess I should look it up and see if I can find anything.

From what I've read the barbs are not compatible with the frogs. I think I will try and see what happens. If they try to nip the frogs I will take them back.

I took the tiger barbs to the elementary school science teacher today. She has a 55 g with 4-5 already in it. They didn't bother the frogs but they were nipping at my pair of GBRs. My tank is nice and peaceful now. Lol
