In my tanks...

1) Top Tank
- 6 Zebra Danios
- 1 Neon Tetra (aww all alone)

2) Bottom Tank
- 2 Male Guppies
- 1 Female Guppy

In the bottom tank there is a marble flooring and I think it would be neat to put a flourescent light underneath of it so it will shine through. I have tried it with a lamp and it looks sooo awesome!!! :D

oh yeah,
both of the tanks are 10 gallons

Well I had a couple of neons, but they died...
I had one that lived for a couple years, a long time in my opinion.
I want that tank to be the "school" tank.
Since I have so many danios they now form a mini - school of fish!
I want to get like 4 more tetras, too.

As well as a new tank, I got some more fish for the big tank on Sat as well.

Bought 6 more ottos, and got an extra one (a zebra, but whos counting..)for free..I think she lost count!

And when We broke down the Plec tank, I discovered a lonely long finned black widow, so he came home with me, and then I bought 5 more to make up the school.

Then My friend got all over excted and bought me the beta tank, and all in all it was a good day!
