    Thanks...my wife picked out the gravel & the fake plants (rest of the decor we all ready had) & she did most of the decerating. It's still kind of a work in progress....we'll get their in due time.

    It is worth it, it seems like to me that the journey of the tank is half the pleasure in fish keeping :)

    Here's a few updated pics of our 55g...only changes is the fish stock, everything else is the same.
    As soon as I can get an accurate count, I'll post the current stock list.
    Pics were uploaded from my smart phone so I hope they turn out ok.

    We've got the stock list/count made up...and this tank is overstocked...we keep up on the filter maintenance and gravel vac/water change 75% weekly. They all get along great, school together and "parade" around the tank.
    Current stock:
    3 black rasbora
    3 bloodfin tetra
    5 scissortail rasbora
    5 black neon tatra
    1 glass tetra (rescued...kept from getting "flushed")
    8 red wag platy
    3 diamond tetra
    3 longfin black skirt tetra
    3 glofish tetra
    1 rainbow shark
    1 redtailed black variatus
    13 black kuhli loach
    4 fruit tetra (die injected white skirts... rescued...kept from getting "flushed")

    Here's some more pics. All are doing really good, but we did loose a red wag though. I thought we would have some issues with the rainbow shark, but so far he's doing good. 040.JPG 041.JPG 053.JPG 060.JPG 063.JPG 064.JPG 065.JPG 068.JPG

    The loaches are really fun to watch....especially at feeding time.
