    2 guppies
    3 Neon Tetras
    3 Glow light tetras
    3 Bloodfin tetras
    2 Clown plecs

    Its a planted tank (go figure), and ive wanted to get an aqatic CP but figured i would need acidit water so...ya thats not gonna happen Oh well.

    No. I find this stuff is almost as bad as hair algae in some tanks. It does well where java moss does well. I usually remove it.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    Goldfish and tropical fish should never be in the same tank together..they have VERY different requirements!!

    Goldfish are "cold water" fish..
    a goldfish tank does not require a heater, and they do best at "room temp"..
    60-70 degrees is ideal.
    that is FAR too cold for tropical fish (like tetras)

    Tropical fish need much warmer water..75-78 degrees is the average for a tropical tank. Tropical fish NEED water that warm to thrive..
    Its far too warm for goldfish..

    some people say "well..why not split the difference and compromise??
    make the water say..72 degrees..then its on the warm end of the goldfish range and the cool end of the tropical fish range"

    yeah..maybe.
    but then you are giving sub-par conditions for ALL the fish!
    the goldfish are stressed because its too warm, and the tropical fish are stressed because its too cold.
    its not ideal for any of them..
    they might survive for awhile, but they will be stressed and will die young.

    If we are going to keep any pets, its our duty to give them the best living conditions we are capable of..
    that means proper water conditions and temps for our fish.

    please put the goldfish and tropicals in seperate tanks..
    its very cruel to keep them together.
    you are harming them..
