As Billbug saggested I am going to look for that Bolivian Ram. Looked it up on the internet and it's a nice looking fish, colorfull as well.
I also looked up the black skirt tetras and they are nice too but I already have two angel fish that are black and silver. Any other suggestions for schooling fish? With more colors?

Thanks!

You are the man, Bill. I followed your suggestion I got 5 black skirt tetras last week and finally got the ram yesterday. They only had one out of three I liked. So I'll wait for the next shippment for the other. I want a pair, but I dont know if I got a male or female. I'll have to find out. The tank is looking much better with plants and rocks. I'll post some pics as soon as I get a chance to download them.

Thanks again !

Yeah, just be careful about paring them up cuz they can get aggressive when they spawn, same goes for the angels as well. Can't wait to see some new pics!

I just added a couple of pics of my tank in my albums. I also added pics of my bolivian ram in the fish album.
I got all kinds of plants but I am still not happy. I think it needs more rocks or a big chunk of driftwood. The tank is 32" high.

I'm jealous of your fish... Haha I know last time I was in there, this place called Deep Sea Creations in Temecula had some large driftwood. It's off the 79 on Temecula parkway. It's right next to the best buy. Might be better if you can see the pieces in person. I was looking at some of your plants and I'm worried you may have got some non-aquatics... The one on the left with the dark green leaves with white may be silver plant and the on a little to the left of that one, I think it may have long green leaves with white edges? That is called white ribbon or ribbon plant. Goggle it and compare, they are actually house plants... I made the same mistake when I first started buying live plants.

Thanks Bill, I think I also got none acuatic plants. Like the mondo grass. When I went back to petsmart I asked and they are sure they are acuatic, maybe they are just mislabeling. In the picture I circled the real plants, the others are fake.
