    This is the second tank we put together. Our family are big fans of Tolkien so we got a Hobbit hole for the 36 and have named all inside after our Middle Earth friends. Hobbits are represented by the Cory Cats, the Elves by the platies and Gourami, the dwarfs but the yo-yo Loaches, and even goblins by the unexpected bladder snails. [​IMG]

    The water looks milky cloudy. How long has the tank been set up for?
    Have you checked the water quality for ammonia and nitrite?
    A 75% water change usually clears up the water pretty quickly.

    You need a picture on the back of the tank to make the fish feel more secure. And you need more floating plants. Try to get the Water Sprite growing. The white substrate will cause the fish to feel exposed and they won't be as colourful. The backing and floating plants should help with this.
