Its been quite awhile now so here's an update 2 of the neons came down with neon tetra disease and died theme other two my very first two after well over a year and couple tank transitions passed on a few days ago so I put the 3 amano shrimp in my 55g the mystery snail actually turned out to be a giant Columbian ramshorn Apple snail rehomed him to my dads tank since he's a terror on plants so I completely tore it down and redid it all just need to order plants and cycle the tank starting from scratch, my planned stock is Red cherry shrimp and blue Mexican platys heres a few pics
