Thanks mate Im pretty chuffed with how it's turning out, and it has only been about a month since I initially filled it.

Some people say Neon Tetras are too 'common' to hold any interest but I think they are an amazing looking fish, their colour goes well with the greenery. I was thinking of getting Cardinals but I couldn't justify the 500% price increase per fish over the Neons, for a bit more red on their body, especially as I bought 10.

The Ramirezi have sensational colours too, Iv'e been keen on them for a couple of years but didn't replace the pair I first got about 4 years ago until now, as they only lived for 3 days in my tank, may have been an error on my part back then :dry:

Some unfortunate news, I turned the light on this morning and all of the eggs had vanished. :blink: My guess is that somebody in the tank ate them. It was too early for them to have hatched.

I'll wait for round 2 and relocate the Tetras into another tank and see what happens with the next batch so stay tuned..

Awesome tank dude! At least you had eggs which will mean you should get more, hopefully next time you have more luck.
