Other fishes are a Pleco, 10+ Ancistrus, 8 SAE, 2 Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, 2 Indian Dwarf cats and 40+ Neons. Plants take some punishment from the everlasting hunt for (imaginary) snails. Small gravel as substrate. A select choice of roots are built together and attatched to a mahogany "frame" which is hidden under the gravel.

Congratulations!
