    Upcoming changes are;
    Get rid of that rock with the hole in,
    Add more plants!
    Maybe move 1 of the pieces of Bogwood to split the sand/gravel substrate apart

    Great pics! Especially love the 5th one.
    Glad you already know what needs resolving :)
    Are you going to end up adding more cories?

    To get a proper group of the cories you want to add their own type, so more albinos (or bronze or green, they're both corydoras aeneus)

    I was going to say add more plants, but you already know what's going on.  Nice job!  I love the gourami btw.  How old is he?  Does he have a name?

    Yeh more plants will be added this weekend or next! Thanks. I'm not 100%, we brought him fron the LFS about 2 months ago (He's my GFs fish) but no telling on how long he's been in there. He's about 6-7cm. He does but I cant remember what her indoors named him...

    Beautiful tank so far. I'd love to see and update! Hopefully with more plants. Any ideas on further stocking the tank?

    Sounds like a great idea! The current neons looked great; building up a bigger school would be wonderful!
