    A+ looks great and will get even better as the plants grow out.

    Did you use eco-complete for the dirt?

    Nice to have friends that work in pet shops!

    Looks nice! Are you worried about stirring up the dirt when adding plants? I tried a dirted tank once, but it didn't work out well for me because I like to rearrange my tank too often haha

    You have a stocking issue, if you'd like to discuss it :)

    Not really scared to stirring up things but I will not be moving them I want to get hair grass but that is down the road and I know that the temperature difference in the fish but they are local breed and are keep in the same temperature as my tank

    That doesn't really matter though, they should still be kept within their natural temp range. They've evolved to be adapted to a particular temp range. A few generations (or even dozens) removed from the wild likely wouldn't change that adaptation that quickly.

    Like I said ty for the info but I know what u are saying but the store and breeder keep them same temperature as my tank is set at.ty sir

    Okay, just be aware that your fish will live shorter lives and be more susceptible to diseases if kept at improper temps, regardless of what the store and breeder tell you/what their temps are at.

    Best of luck!
