    Hi Everyone! I just got a new pearl gourami (His name is Sampson :) ) this weekend (some of you may have read about how he went FLYING and bumped his head :whistling: ) and he has finally colored up for me! He was really washed out and had a bump on his head, but today he is looking fabulous. His orange throat and iridescent tint is back, but he is still acting shy.... not moving very fast, so he was easy to photograph! He also ate today, so that is good too :) Sorry my camera is crappy, thats the best quality I could get :)

    P.S. I included a tank pic, I re-arranged the rocks (they were bugging me) and did a little plant work :p Hope you like it!

    The rocks are river rocks from a local natural stone seller, he sold them to me by the pound. The stand came from petsmart years back, originally had a 20 long with a snake on top, but now the 29 sits on top and the snake is on the bottom (not actually made to hold a tank on the bottom, but the snake cage weighs virtually nothing)

    I recently re-arranged the rocks (they were bugging me) and now that it is more balanced I am happy again :) I think I am going to be getting some more low-light plants, so hopefully that will add a little more interest to my tank :)
