Hi, I finally got a red lizard whiptail!! It's so cute, my amano shrimp are bigger than him or her?? As I mentionned in another thread I was supposed to test my GH at my LFS but I forgot... I also mentionned I was gonna get a 10 gallon aquarium in my kitchen or dining room... Well actually when my dad went at my LFS with me and he saw other aquariums I don't know why, he was like let's get that tank size and he pointed at a 20-30 gallon. He literally told me not to tell my mom and then when I find one on marketplace we will get i and just tell her that the fish I showed her can only go in that tank size and it will be too late for her to say no :rofl::yahoo:(I know she won't be mad). I would like to make a south american fish only and maybe get a pair of appistogramma. What specie stay around 3 inch? I would like to get some ideas and know if there is any south american fish that you like more than others. My little whiptail and the biggest amazon frogbit I have ever seen in my 55 gallon (more than on inch leaves) :

Nice looking frog bite, wish I could buy it around here but it is against the law to import. It is a very nice looking plant, I like the roots the best. I do small South American tetras in my 55 gallon tank. Nothing as big as 3 inches. The largest are red eye tetra which do grow to about 2 inch long.

Amazon frogbit is my favorite floating plant, I will post a picture of the long roots! I meant 3 inch max for the apistogramma

Understood, I have to use salvinia for my floating plant in my tetra tank, had beautiful 3 foot plus long anacharis but it melted on me after 8 months

Looks really nice, I received a little frog bite in the mail a couple of weeks ago. Just a few leaves and I put it into my platy fry tank but the pond snails got at it and left almost nothing. I moved the two little leaves left to my tetra tank:(

Oh that's sad, I think I saw in another thread that you were able to get some anacharis not so long ago?

He could hide really easily and be hard to find,
I know but since I got him, he stays at the front of the tank and he doesn't look shy or stressed, the big pearl gouramis were pushing each other at the bottom of the tank for food next to him and he stayed there.
