Photo Caption: This picture was taken a while ago, there have been a few changes since. The fish include: 10 harlequin rasboras, 2 SAE's, 5 otocinclus, 6 corydoras, 4 german blue rams, a few killi fish, and 6 cardina japonica shrimp. I don't gravel vac too often. I will just push the tube into the plants as far as possible to get debris out. Every once in a while I will uproot plants to gravel vac and then replant, this also keeps things from getting too dense.
