    Howzit all, so I was asked to share my systems by @TetraJacques and @A new day so here it goes.

    This is my community tank that was meant to be for African cichlids. (Didn't end up enjoying them as much as I'd hoped) Also sorry for the reflection

    Stocking for this tank is vast
    4x pearl gourmai
    6x neon golden barbs
    7x herliquin rasbora
    3x dwarf Neon Rainbow fish
    4x seprae tetra
    6x Xray tetra
    6x Neon tetra
    3x flame tetra
    And then the fish you don't see in the picture
    2x L144 albino bristle nose plecos
    1x L201 snowball pleco bought from Amakawa
    And lastly and my favourite 8x clown loaches between 6 and 12cm

    And then my neolamprologus brichardi grow out tank

    Enjoy:thumbup:

    Too small for clown loaches unfortantantly so they will remain in the 1.2 for now until I can get my hands on a 1.8 or 2.0 tank

    The new tank is this 2 foot here the measurements are in there and pics since we all like pics

    Oh ya I remember that. Are you planning on a planted tank? Maybe some tiger barbs. The green one looks amazing!!

    The tub is a 5 liter ice cream tub to reference size

    Have googled green tiger barbs and I like them very pretty but says minimum tank is 30 gallons so I don't meet that criteria in the planted tank. :(:(

    I wanted to go small for it but I see that might limit me but its okay because things can add up fast in planted tanks from my research

    @Whoknows, why don't you try danio's. There's some real pretty ones available out there for sale. I personally looked at them a couple of times.
