    So when I rearranged the tank so I could add my red mangroved I didn't mean to set this little alcove up but it happened! Best part is the tank sits next to be be so when i turn over I can see the fish/inverts :) anyways I have noteed in the few days it has been set up this way every single fish I have, and invert, has been in it at least once so i decided to take pictures! This will also include full tank shots and fish updates!

    It is made from driftwood and a clam shell. The center piece is a red lilly that my brother silver dollars at down to 2 leaves... 2 weeks later look at it now!!! And an anubias eye, it was some place else but the cories knocked it lose (sp) I like the look and may attack it to the shell :)

    A Cory broke rank but if you look next to the shell you see another is never to far :)

    Dude!!!! I really want a larger tank (55g at least) lol... I would def stick with 15 cories though... 25 would be fun though ;)

    And i got the at petsmart in their freezer... it was on sale and thought I would give it a shot :) never lasts more than an hour with my 6 cories... I am actually thinking of upping the school to 10 though..

    Lol I can't wait to get it started still got to move the old 12 gallon but that shouldn't take long I'm looking forward to doing the planting and aquascaping :)

    I may see if I can find frozen plankton as I am planning a plec or two too :)

    Bigger schools are always better I'm probably going to have one school of 8 and one of 7 and then probably add to them as time goes by I just need to make sure they have enough floor space for scooting about ;)
