Cool!!! The fish and tank are very pretty. How many fish do you have in there?

I'm thinking about putting some glofish in with my normal zebra danios, but I think they would get out-shined by the flouresents! lol

Thanks again! I have 10 danios and 2 albino cories in there right now. My last gold barb also was in it but I moved him to another tank since I saw him picking on the cories at feeding time. I know, overstocked but I change almost half the water and vacuum every week. The pink danios I've had for almost a year now so they're doing ok like this! And they showed ich a few days after I got them but survived that as well. Danios are quite hardy little guys. :D

man I wish we could get glolights in oz, they're banned as commercial pets here. I want to set up a tank with a black-light, flouro gravel and plants. I've heard if you use an actinic light that they glow pretty well... maybe you could get an actinic when you replace your light next? :yeah:

That's too bad you can't get glofish over there. :( Even here some states don't allow them. The official word though is that they do NOT pose a threat to native species because they can't survive for long in our cold waters.

I never heard of actinic so I looked it up. Guess it's a different spectrum?? Sounds neat, I will check it out!

Yeah, the actinic lights are what they use in marine set-ups, it mimics the sunlight that the corals receive, it's like a really blue light, make stuff fluoresce, I'm not too sure it'd be any good for freshwater plants tho', but what I can tell from your pic none of your plants are of the growing type, right? :)
