Update:
2.12.11

Sold my clown loaches and tiger barbs and I now have 20 Harlequin Rasboras
You can barely see them in this pic as they're still pretty small. About 0.5-0.7" lol
The school is smaller than I imagined so I might up it to 30.
Suggestions?

Bump...
and heres an update after the trim with the school of harlequins....
They were all of a sudden gone in the tank and they're slowly coming out...
Don't know what happened but they got shocked of something.
Btw, one of the harlequins got its right eye bit out... and i don't think he/she'll survive through the night :(

Two days away from my birthday! XD

Added 5 smaller amanos, I hope that my rainbow sharks leave them alone :D. Funny story about the Amanos, the sales clerk at The Wet Spot counted the 5 as only 1 so I almost got 5 amanos for 1.95$! lol I say almost because my dad made me go back and tell the truth :p
As you can see, I've completely hacked back the left side.I pulled up all the plants and replanted them more loosely apart. I then plunged in 30 root tabs on the left side alone :D
Here are the two bunches:

Here are the two bunches that I didn't replant
