Think a trim of the tenellus is needed, should make them have a red colouring too once they grow back.
I really like that orange hint coming through the background, ludwigia?
Correct, it has not captured the red-ness properly but it looks much better than that.

They are a classic fish IMO and often overlooked for favour of the flashier cardinal tetra. I always go for the underdog and I like the subtle appearance of neons. I do plan to add more tetras though to give it a bit of colour and also I fancy having some blue rams in there too.
Indeed mate. I've always liked the even more subtle P. simulans (green or false neons). I still love my black neons too.
Keep up the good work, Neil.
I am starting to get frustrated with this layout already. Buying the ADA old iron wood hasn't helped matters and I can't help feeling a sand foreground is the way to go, much easier to maintain! The trimming I am finding difficult because the growth of the stems is so agressive. I'm also considering a bigger tank. I mean I've got room in my flat for a 90cm tank to replace the 60 but in doing that I'd have to scale up on everything, all my glassware, filter, lights, diffuser etc. The cost of getting a 90x45x45 together would be pretty huge, and a lot more maintainance I guess. Look at me here complaining about maintanence on a 60cm tank and thinking I should upgrade to a 90, I need help! *shakes head*
