Hey, how much for the H.C.?

..and do you have any small, purple crypts? (I think the one I'm looking for is the beckettii or wendtii)

Well back left corner looks like crypt wendtii, probably green. Looks like you have cabomba green on both sides of the tank. The plant to the right of the crypt looks like a ludwigia of some sort, possibly a rotala. Can't really tell from the picture. You got some micro sword for you foreground and can't tell what kind of moss that is by the big rock on the left. Just a suggestion, you might wanna move the diffusor under the power head and let the impellar crush those co2 bubbles even more.

Keeping 15 ghost shrimp and 5 otocinclus's (not sure if that's correct) basically my cleaning crew. As soon as the tank is more established I'll be purchasing 1 or 2 pea puffer's to dispatch my crazy snail population. Still haven't decided on fish for the general population looking at possibly some Danios and some other schooling fish not sure if I want to go with cardinals maybe something a little less popular but, I may end up going that way cause they do look nice. More pictures of the tank to come shortly in my "Journal".

I dunno if you seen my thread about my cardinals, but some lemon tetras would look sweet. They school like no tomorrow in my 55. I would say some lemons and some rummynose would look sweet. I wouldn't recommend cardinals and lemons only because I already got that pair going. Lol...

Yeah I did a little research and I narrowed it down I'll probably be keeping all or a mixture of these possible tank inhabitants.
Ember Tetra-
Hyphessobrycon Amandae

Mosquito Rasbora-
Boraras Brigittae

Rummy-Nose Tetra-
Hemigrammus Rhodostomus

Rasbora Axelrodi
Sundanio Axelrodi

Glowlight Danio
Danio Choprai
(don't know the scientific name of the last two and it seems they have been categorized differently by others also)

I guess I have a bit more time to contemplate it will probably be decided by the fish stores we have here. Tank is still not ready for much else but the clean up crew for now I am still waiting to add a bushy nose pleco to the mix I've read it's better to get the oto's to get the run of things in the tank first. Plus the albino long finned bnp's are expensive don't want to have a casualty.

thanks! and yep, i moved the diffuser under the powerhead after i took this picture and did my next tank cleaning. the plants on both sides aren't similar. the ones on the left have leaves that look like human fingers and the ones on the right have finer hair-like leaves. and the moss are java moss (only one i know and forgot to mention)
