    Looks great, John. Very helpful info there, too. Didn't know higher lighting caused the need for more nutrients, although it does make sense once you think about it.

    I vote for cardinal tetras and a couple panda corys (love cory cats). :D

    Cool tank! Those planted tanks are pretty nice, especially for fresh water.

    They are very pretty and look their best in planted tanks.
