My 29gal tank finally finished cycling this past Monday so I finally have my fish friends!!!
I got....

7 neon rainbowfish (3 males, 4 females) named:
Helios (m), Perses (m), Aeetes (m), Circe (f), Pasiphae (f), Medea (f), and Ariadne (f)

2 bolivian rams (1 male, 1 female) named:
Koios (m), and Phoebe (f)

1 bristlenose pleco (???) named:
Daedalus (it's a male name... but the little guy is too small to tell)
(His fins came a bit ragged so I'm glad to have taken him out of a tank where I think he was being fin nipped. None of his new tank mates bother him at all!!!)

Can you tell I like Greek mythology?!? :p

mattgirl I know you had asked for pictures so here they are!!! :)

Everyone seems to be doing really well except that I'm not sure if my rams are getting enough (or any) food... they definitely don't seem to be in any rush to eat & the rainbowfish pick off a lot of stuff before it even falls to the bottom. Hopefully I'm just missing it & they graze all day.... but it definitely makes me wish I had sand instead of gravel :/

Wow your tanks looks nice! And if your Bristlecone Pleco turns out to be female may I suggest the name Persephone?

what a lovely tank! Don't worry that you have gravel- in my opinion it makes it harder for your grazers to over eat and it's easier to vacuum than sand is.
Thank you!!! That makes me feel better :)
