    Yes. Had 25 Black Neons with 100s of Neocaridina in the same 80cm tank for a long time.

    Cool! Then I won't rule them out.

    Some new plant additions as well as livestock coming up later today. Watch this space ;)

    New additions; Hygrophila pinnatifida and Myriophyllum 'Guyana'. Myriophyllum is planted behind the Blyxa instead of Bacopa caroliniana as I found the leaf size to large for that part of the tank.
    I think the Hygrophila will (and already has) improved the shade/light balance a lot.

    I'm a bit late to the party and only just discovered this thread. Really loving the latest "Succession" in the image above.

    JEK, can I ask, and please excuse my ignorance and lack of knowledge, what are the mossy clumps at the bottom right and leading down from the rocks?

    Thanks a lot! The mossy clumps are Aegagropila linnaei (actually a green algae).

    Thanks JEK. I'm learning something new every day. When I look for Aegagropila linnaei, Google comes up with Marimo Moss Balls. Are they the same and maybe cut in half?

    Exactly - I have torn most of them in half.

    C. pygmaeus added - only 4 so far (long story), but the plan is to get at least twice as many.

    They do have tiny little mouths. I'll try and get a hold of some grindal worms and start a culture.

    I liked the moss, but maybe not as many. Around 5 little blobs in amongst the rocks would be my choice.

    Lovely tank - similar layout to what I'm hoping to achieve in my sons new tank (though I doubt it'll look anywhere as good as this one).

    Can I just ask what Buce species you have in the image above? Did you buy them at that size, or have they been grown on in another tank?
