Well im down to 1 neon tetra 2 zerbra danios and my cories/oto. I put a sponge over my filter intake, and not thinking about it put a small slit in the bottom to make sure the water went through and it turned into a BIG hole. so 3 of my fish got sucked up into the filter and i have to go clean the guts off of the media. Ill be taking back the neon and zebras most likely and getting something else, possibly some harlequins.I have some cheese mesh rubberbanded over the filter intake now cause i lost the old cover to it lol.
Just thaught i would share that with you all.

20 Gallon planted: no fish
