i have2 assason snail 10 neons 3 Emraled corycats and just added today 5 blue rams i got today Aug 30th from charles :) im so happy with them there so cute . i still want to add more fish & plants to the tank just not sure yet what kinds i do know i want a sword plant just not sure where to get it as my LPS does not have any :(
