we're back.....

sooo, the last of the 4 original Platies died last month. one day he was swimming thru the filter bubbles playing and the next, well..

we cleaned everything out really good over the last few weeks and
just 2 days ago got 2 painted platys and 5 neon tetras. oh, and one small, pleco thing. they are all so tiny and lively!

Baby matthew loves them all. I have to say the platys sure are beautiful.

and....possibly stupid question.....my husband asked me 'so, how do you make the neon tetras glow?"....i hadn't really thought about it. is it black lite? i remember a friend growing up had a HUGE tank of them and when i pent the night it had a purple glow....

anyway, just thought i'd share.

Congrats on the new fish, but you might want to think twice about the pleco. Plecos require a lot of room.

the tetras are amazing to watch....since there are 5, it's really neat to see them school.

Oh, well...the pleco is small...they said when it gets too big, we can trade it in for a smaller one. lol

When I had fishies, I was told that the darker gravel and a flourescent light would help to bring the neon's color out, it seemed to work. BTW welcome back
