I'm still waiting for them to fully colour up, the lemons. Were a very nice yellow in store. They're still young as well, so I expect more coloring will happen as they grow.Wow, I love the cory close up above all else, including the pogo & embers. But they look great too!
I had lemons once fairly recently. Mine didn't look as awesome as yours! Must be your lighting & amazing camera skills. But I liked them a lot!
Vietnamese white clouds are beautiful!I like a mix of 2 schoolers in some cases too. As you've seen, it can help more shy fish feel safe enough to be out & about, bottom feeders too. But often it's a case of aggressive vs shy without careful selections & decor. You've done very well, I like the combo.
My lemons were a gift rehome from a club friend. He had 3 generations but they didn't breed successfully for me & gradually died out.
Since my strong interest is in bottom feeders I sometimes take other's schoolers that fit with my favorites or existing groups. I was waiting for my gift leopard danios to (finally) die off in my hillstream loach tank...& just a few rummynose tetras in a different tank. I'd like to choose the next fish I get, lol. I'm thinking of Vietnamese whiteclouds again in the river tank (a clubber breeds them or used to) & roseline sharks somewhere, we loved them!
I try too, to "let" my husband have a choice of next fish. Problem is we have a LOT of favorites from over the years, his tend to be CA cichlids that don't work with my ideas. I'll try your "pick 1 of 4" species, that's a good plan!
