Thanks! I think I went the "unique" way by making my "substrate" as rocks, I got them at Home Depot & looks pretty neat as I can rearrange a lot of the caves when new members arrive, I also put in a collection of shells & odd pebbles from the Great Falls River in Potomac, MD. With these it is much easier to siphon the tank of debris, tank divider cause Rocket (Flame Red Dwarf Gourami) was too territorial & aggressive to Neon (Cobalt Blue Dwarf Gourami). It's true that everyone says they're peaceful but not so much the case with Rocket, he also terrorizes the Paradise GouramI which definitely fights back, it almost caused serious injuries to Rocket! I just can't give him up cause he's the best looking Dwarf GouramI I've seen.

Thanks for checking guys...

Here's the equipment list & it's fairly cheap. (Soon a HUGE saltwater tank!)

Glass 10 Gallon Aquarium - $10
Top Fin HOB Filter - $13
Top Fin Heater - $12
Thermometer - $3
Penn Plax Divider - $7
Stones - $10
Background - $5
Silk Plants (I had real ones before but the Gouramis kept on destroying it) - $7
Biozyme (for cycling) - $3
Water Conditioners - $10
Net - $3
Food (Brine Shrimp, Bloodworms, Flakes) - $15

Cheap huh for a begginer's tank?!

Thanks for looking!

well I would say their fast.. they're not as fast as the regular ones. get the gold ones, the black ones are quite slower for some odd reason.

I have changed the inhabitants of the tanks, I housed it with LAKE MALAWI MBUNAS. The Gouramis are now housed in a different tank. It now has a BLACK background to intensify the fish' color, and more rocks for caves, the hardness of the water was also increased with buffers. The water is also changed twice per week at 25%.

1 Electric Yellow Cichlid
1 Red Zebra
1 Albino Zebra
1 Femaie Kenyi
2 Albino Catfishes as the cleaner crew

here's some more. enjoy. tell me what ya think!

hehe. this is the youngest out of everyone!
