    Started stocking the 65 gal hex.
    6x Platy
    4x Rosy Barbs
    2x painted danios (what was left when I first got the tank)
    1X Zebra Stripe Butterfly Pleco (he was hiding no pics yet)
    This is my second planted tank and I thought I would try some different types of plants and fish.
    The one on the left is when we first filled it up. The plants were kind of a joke and the rocks were from the old tanks setup by previous owner. Middle and right are after re-scape. It was a lot harder with this tank for I am 5'9'' and the tank is really tall.

    Very pretty ;) what else will you put in there? More danios and barbs? Maybe some corys?
    I would love one of those :) it would be awful for me to clean though. I'm 5'4" lol

    Probably some more barbs and get some gourami but not much more. As far as tank cleaning I got a stick scrubber.

    Honey gourami? I don't think other gourami can live together unless you get a mated pair. Honeys will school though

    Yeah, I was looking at that. Only 1 male gourami and 1 female will go in. I got a mated pair in my 20 gal no issues. I keep the water parameters just out what a gourami might consider "breeding season", and I didn't know honeys will school?

    I've read from a lot of people on here that honeys like to be in groups. Which is weird I thought because all other gouramis are territorial. But maybe its because they're so small. Sweet :) you don't want to try to breed them? Just to see if they would?

    I am going to try to breed the gouramis but ill have to get another tank and those honeys look pretty awesome! I'll have to look in to my local LFS to see if anybody's got them.
