    White clouds are not tetras. They are minnows.

    Sure, white clouds are not tetras but when I had some and they bred they did have a bright blue streak when the light hit them just right when the babies were young, kinda like a neon tetra. In the pic the white clouds look rather thin and not shaped like a full-bodied adult so I'd guess they are not fully grown and maybe that is why some people think they look like neon tetras?

    That is an insane number of fiah for that fish bowl.

    Normally I'd get all up in your grill, but like you said they were feeder fish.

    Test your water chemistry. The results will probably surprise you, especially with your filtration being so minimal.

    Here's my 6 gallon. The Ludwigia ovalis has grown in a lot more since this photo and the Anubias lanceolata was divided. It's housing a few licorice gouramis.

    here's an updated pic of my tank! this was taken about 6 months ago at the end of May:





    I did some "maintenance" a few weeks ago and ended up just annihilating most of the plants... i thought i could pull up the plants in one big chunk keeping most of it intact in order to clean out the subrate underneith then replace the plants, but they just went into shock and most died. i've got the tank all cleaned out of dead crap and im pretty much back where i started. oh well... at least the gravel is clean

    If you know other unique plants that can walk, can talk, can sing, or can eat people, please tell me and I definitely want to get one.

    EDIT:
    and oh---i NEVER changed the water....teehee. infact, i dont ever change the water in my fishtanks. i pretty much stole Reverse Ionized dH2O from college laboratores, and planted heavily. there was also a very large microscopic invert population as well. the only time i ever put water into the tank was when the waterline became low.
    i do about a 10% water change on my tank montly... or so.
    just to get the nitrates out, as i read they dont ever go away on their own?
    any words on this?

    The problem with not doing regular water changes is when something negative happens and then you need to do a water change and the fish goes into shock from the clean water.
