    Would just like people's input to which fish I get next.

    I currently have 9 Harlequin Rasboras and 1 Cherry Shrimp.

    I've always thought about adding some Pencil fish, but am also liking the idea of just having a big shoal of Harlequins - maybe get some Copper ones or something.

    I'll be adding more shrimp soon too, to take it back upto about 10 or so.

    Pencilfish are great. I have a shoal of 11 Nannostomus eques that kinda float around at a 45 degree angle and look superb IMHO. However I'd definitely up the number of harlequins to about 20 first to get a really good shoal before adding anything else. 1 big shoal looks so impressive.

    I prefer the copper ones these days, but that's probably just 'cos they're newer. If you want to splash some cash there are a new variety of pencil around now that are stunning, Nannostomus mortenthaleri.
