Tons of plant cover. That is key to success in my opinion.

Yes! They actually came 1 day early. (Post office text updates don't work). So far so good. No DOA but both bags were starting to leak so it's a good thing they were a day early.

Just bought some black Thai guppies. I added 3 tanks to my fish area last night. Adding 2 to 3 more today. I'm ready to rock! !

Well I was in an accident 5 years ago and it just settled so I came into some money and I'm investing some into my fish hobby. Trying to make it a small biz so that the fish pay for themselves. Probably a pipe dream but gives me something to do and a stress release. My parents are both disabled in some way so I have to help them and I'm finishing my master's degree so I have a decent bit of stress. Lol!

They are nice fish. I'm stuck on delta tails for whatever reason. Just personal preference. I can appreciate the others though.

Has anyone heard of black Thai guppies? They look to my untrained eye to be the same as black moscows.

Pics of my HB yellows and black moscows. I found out black Thai is a black Moscow strain imported from Thailand. Lol
