    Okay I really want a fish tank and I've been thinking about it for awhile now. I read up on the cycling and all that stuff. What I really want to know is a 10 gallon the minimum? I'd really want a tank a little smaller then that that will fit on my desk, a ten gallon would be a bit big. I...

    Today my mission was to get pictures of all of my fish. I completely failed, haha. Apparently I suck at photography today :rolleyes:. The fish weren't exactly being cooperative, either.

They are really pretty...pretty light and dark green with a really pretty bright purple on the underside of the leaves.
