Heres another update. Got some furcata rainbowfish, theres only a few left. They are doing great, my water parameters are good, the plants are all growing, and you are all leaving good comments!

I'm going to do frequent updates, for you guys and for myself. Its like my little journal of how my tank is doing. I HATE DEAD THREADS! When people just start them give you a few pictures as a tease and thats it. THIS won't BE THAT THREAD!!!

Heres some pictures for you (notice how much water lettuce and how tall the one in the back is getting)



This took awhile to get, very active fish, couldent get a picture of the female

WOW nice tank! Great start! I Really like your choice of plants.

How many Furcata Rainbowfish did you get? I did some research and I found out they are schooling fish that probably won't breed unless u get about 6-7 of them. Also as rainbowfish they will probably benefit from a very small amount of salt (1.003

I got a male/female pair, I am aware that they are a schooling fish but it was 16.88 for the pair. A bit pricey I think they have a few left, I have not decided if I want to get more

I really like the look of the tank. The fish too.

I was wondering what the plant in the back right corner is? It looks like Hornwort to me, but I'm not sure.

I think it is cabomba truestar.

I know your pain in getting pictures of the rainbows, back when I had my celebese I only got 6 or 7 decent quality images of them. Rolling Eyes They are really fast! I like how the tank is coming along, I love that male Furcatus, I hope to be getting a school of them soon for "my mom's" tank.

Yep, it does look like Cabomba. I'm really no good at identifying or growing plants, but I do enjoy looking at other peoples plants. Thanks for the ID Jacko.

Ya it is a yellow cabomba, but it is super green! The rainbows are sooooooooooooooo fast, they never sit still. Hornwort looks more like a pine tree it is also not as delicate as the cabomba
