My Comments:

I have a school of 9 Head-and-Tail Light Tetras in a 120l community tank. They are active and attractive fish, spending most of thier time shoaling in the middle regions of the tank. Be warned they do have a tendancy to nibble on plant leaves though they cause very little damage.
If a great gardner has green fingers, does a great fishkeeper have fish fingers?

You forgot to post your photo...
Are you a Fish-HAVER or a Fish-KEEPER?
Success with a fish/tank is measured in YEARS, not months or weeks...
