We wanted to try sand as we enjoy a more natural substrate. We love the small tumbled stones but they still add to the look in a different way. Took ages to find appropriate sand for a freshwater tank but have been pleased. The Kuhli loaches LOVE it and are thriving. And it doesn't draw the eye from the tetra in any way. The picture posted here is from very soon after we set up the sand, it looks a lot better now. I should take some more current photos.

Cool, Thanks!
Oh, Ghost Shrimp. Yeah, they are neat little critters. That is so funny that you mention you have 3 Female and 1 Male Ghost Shrimp; my sister has the same amount of shrimp and the exact ratio. We figured out they were females because all of a sudden one had eggs and then the other one had eggs too. The only one left was this tiny little shrimp. He was obviously the male and much smaller than the two females. I have yet to see any babies though. I think its because she has Guppies. Just like your Tetras, they aren't hesitant to have a nutritional snack. Hopefully though, if some survive, they make it to adulthood. I agree that Otocinclus are playful. They like to be in a group among their kind and like to play around and swim. They are awesome Fresh Water Catfish who are great at eating algae. Well, I have left you a vote. Happy Fish Keeping!

Cool! Yup, I'd agree that your Tetras are about full grown (although I've seen some that are about an 1 1/2"). They are great little fish. As for your Loaches, they are peaceful fish that will mind their own business but are very playful. You said you have a shrimp. Where do you keep it and what kind of shrimp is it? That is so cool that it was raised in your tank. I left you another vote. Thanks for the other vote :) Happy Fish Keeping!

I had to stop by and check out your tank. It's really nice looking. I love kuhli loaches, I have six black and two striped along with a golden dojo. They are so much fun to watch. I used to have a few shrimp too but my dojo thought they were for him. Leaving you a vote.

Come visit me, Kuhli.

That is nice to hear. Thats good that you have hiding places like the roots for your loaches to explore in. Tetras are good Tropical Fish. How big are your Tetras? I left you another vote. Happy Fish Keeping!

Deceives the Eye
What a beautiful tank. I really like the way it is decorated. At first, I thought it was a big tank but when I saw it was a 10gallon, I was amazed. You have beautiful Neon Tetras there. They look pretty big from the picture. One little tip on loaches; they need hiding spaces and it would be better if you added a little cave or a driftwood piece with several nooks and crannies for your loaches to explore but it is up to you. However, it is nice that you have plants since the loaches do love to explore through the plants and play in the roots. I want to welcome you to Fish Channel and hope that you find this club enjoyable. I have left you a vote. Happy Fish Keeping!
