I've been thinking of the last week or so and wondering if in the planted/aquascaping world I'm doing things backward. Let me explain... Since I chilled a load of harlequins to death, I decided to get the fantastic Celestial Pearl Danio as my main shoal of fish, I knew from the offset that these fish like to hide in the plant cover but their beauty and keeping what I considered non-standard fish to be a good experience. Then during my recent rescape, I purchased 20 pygmy cories, again for their unusal size and cuteness! So, I've got c. 20 CPDs, c. 20 pygmy cories and about 5 Ottos in my tank which occupy the lower reaches of my tank for 99% of the time. I've started to realise that my "algae cleanup crew" isn't sufficient after looking at the results that my CRS are having in my nano. So I've started to think about getting some Amano shrimp to help things in my larger tank. But then, I'll have even more that will be along the floor more of the time. So, my planted tank is getting to where I want it, I've started to think that my species of fish are no longer suitable to what fits into my plans. I know the LFS would be willing to take them and I know they do give my reasonable price. But what's the way that people look at the plants and fish relationship? Do they get plants then think of fish or the other way around? I've always been a fish person and plant around them (which is fine!) but I'd like to see my fish now and again!
