Hello! New to the site.

    Hey all, just thought I'd say hi, and welcome any tips as I am always open to ideas to better keep my fish.

    I recently got back into the hobby a little over a month ago, and have two tanks on the go.

    My 20 gallon currently has a school of neons (around 20-25, I bought 18 but the guy didn't count), 3 panda corys, a cherry shrimp and 4 guppies
    Running a little peat in the filter for the neons.
    Has 2 amazon swords, and some other plant I can't name.


    My 29 gallon is subtropical and has 2 rainbow snakeheads (channa bleheri).
    (These are legal in canada)
    It's planted with an amazon sword, 3 java ferns, and a mystery plant.


    Just wondering if people have experience with rainbows, and any tips to help bring their colours out, comments on my tanks, and general discussion:)

    Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    They are illegal in the US.

    +1 Extremely invasive in any waters, takes over waters from natural and stocked game fish, eats anything that moves. Came from China I think. Not to be confused with a Bowfin (dogfish), completely different fish.

    I like how the sword is placed with the ship.

    I know. That's why I don't know anything about them.
