Think I might not go with Rams.... sadly. Any other fish recommendations ? I liked cardinals but I want something different this time. Not the usual Tiger barbs, neons or angel fishes.

I'm sticking with having Fire Red shrimps thou.

They're nice bro but I am thinking about other fishes still. But I'll definitely keep them in mind ! Thank you =)

Truthfully nice effort but I personally do not like the placement of the rocks. Try to look up on the golden ration of placement & depth creation(Amano & many other hobbists did talk alot about these). So it looks more "comfortable" to the eye.

Do spread the moss & tie them up with lesser on the top because overtime they will cluster more on the top of your rocks due to higher light available(that or algue will do the job instead).

Your tank looks small 1ft cube? Can try with boraras species(quite common) & small corydoras like pygmaeus, hastatus etc. Nice badis badis btw

Did you cycle your tank 1st?

Thank you for taking time to look out my tank. I will be studying these meanwhile to await for the next scape but I will hang with this in the meantime to see how it grows out. Thank you for the fish introductions, been looking around to see for corys and boraras to hopefully join the community.

My tank is a 50cm cube tank. Hunted these Dario Darios for awhile and am happy to have them finally as part of my aquarium community.

My tank is using old water and running on a previous setup's cannister (the one before tearing down) so the cycling process is instilled prior to fish introduction.

Hi, it is dario dario, also known as scarlet badis. I bought mine at Qian Hu but I believe C328 might have it now. Do make a call before heading down =)

I think the anubias looks out of place in the tank. It is disproportionate compared with the other plants. More moss or smaller plants would be better.

Don't add any sandsifters. Else soon, you will no longer have a slope.
