Least Killifish Tank

Finally decided to get a group of least killifish yesterday and i'm pretty excited about it
Please excuse the fact that all the pics here are crumby; all i'm working with here is a phone camera and these guys are so tiny and so fast, lol

Here's the tank as a whole:



The killis stuck in acclimation bag jail:


And freedom!:




As well as a bonus pic of a couple of the amanos in that tank, because they're much easier to photograph:


They're just sooo tiny, I'm totally enamored. I'd read somwhere that they're likely to be shy the first couple weeks in a new space, but my group already seems rather outgoing. If they is shy, I can't wait to see what "not shy" looks like
I am open to advice, just please be kind, haha

Thank you both!

Trying out root pellets for the plants, fingers crossed for that to work out well, haha
Trying to keep the nitrates/nitrites/ammonia levels in balance currently; it was a pre-established (running for well over a year) before i added the least killies + some of the plants and it wasn't an issue previously, so i'm not sure what the issue there is but i'm on the case, lol

I'm just talking to the breeze at this point, but I adore these little fish!
They're super fun to watch; they take rests on the different tiers of the cabomba, it looks like they have their own little apartments when they do that, lol
I'm incredibly excited to see some babies from them It's hard to imagine how TINY they must be!
