Had to remove my Bosemani Rainbow fish as most of them were suffering from dropsy and getting skinny.
Replaced them with 22 "Head and Tail Light" Tetras (Hemigrammus ocellifer). Always wanted to buy some Cardinal tetra but I felt that the choice was such a cliché. Also think their colours are a little too overwhelming for the scape.
The new guys are doing OK. The more dominant fishes tend to establish their own territories. Introduced some Cherry Shrimp yesterday but was disappointed to find the tetras attacking them (though not all the time).... Don't think they'd make it in the long run...
Advice: Change half of the tank's water every week.
Keep your plants nicely pruned and well fertilized.
Consistently work on your tank so you'll enjoy it more and keep algae at bay ;-)
