    I now have fish-less 5 gal tank in my living room. I would like to put something in it. Currently, there are RCS and MTS, java moss (all tied down,) and some grass looking stuff. Thanks in advance!

    wont the frogs eat my shrimp? and i dont have to have a way for them to get out of the water? I am kind of liking the idea of Least Killifish. How many?

    The frogs ate all my real small Shrimp. Once they get a bit bigger, they are fast enough to get away. They are also fully aquatic, and I disagree with anyone even letting them have access to get out the water. They get into trouble like that :;nin2

    All male (they are small, just over 1/2 inch) Least Killies, 8 or so, but mixed sex, like 5 or 6, and be ready to catch babies :)

    I dont know anything about ADF's, just curious. What colors do the LK's come in? It would be pretty perfect if they were really colorful. Also, how big do endlers get?

    Least Killies in brown and brown :p Here are my guys (they are actually a lot darker, but the camera said "NOOOO!" XD):

    Endlers get 1-2 inches, depending on male or female, pure or hybrid.

    Lol! Hate'n on dem fish! I like their patterns, but i was looking for color. I just might do ADF's. Since they are fully aquatic.

    Neons are too active for a 5 gallon.

    Heh, good luck with that!

    Lol not really, you just have to be persistent. I caught mine, but I've seen them on AquaBid, and they are starting to become popular, so keep a sharp eye out! Its kinda like finding pure endlers for a decent price :p
