    Beautiful. Harlequins are great fish. Had some a while back in my parent's house, they all got over excited during feeding time, jumped out, and unfortunately died.

    Wow, I never knew a 10g could look so beautiful! When it comes to getting a tank heavily planted like that, did you plant it like that right off the bat, or did you plant it more scarcely and wait for them to grow?
