    Meet Cerise!

    I have a 20 gal tank I was trying to sell on CL, but it wasn't moving. So with some assistance from folks in my local Tropical Fish Society, I removed the old hood and made a sliding glass top for it. Next thing I know, there is a local fish store with a big clearance sale (they had a fire and need to sell everything so work and begin, to make them bigger and better) and I have my 'old' tank set up again.

    This time I went with black - substrate and background. They had this gorgeous red beauty for $1.50 so I got it (reason for 'it,' not him coming right up!). They claim this is a female? I've named Cerise - not very original for a red, I'm sure, lol.

    I got new driftwood, lots of little plants, one bright red fake plant (could picture it in the tank and knew it fit perfectly with this new set up!). And then I picked up some neon tetras for tank mates at PetCo. I wanted cardinals, but the neons were on sale, so I got those. I had 6 but one died; replace that and in 5 hours THAT one died. I need to return the 2d dead one this morning. OK here are the pics!

    (Sorry camera lens did not open all the way)











    Best close up I could get so far. That fake green and red plant I had already, pulled it from another tank of mine. The bright red one in the far back corner is the new one. All those little plants (3 banana plants and 3 something else) were 3 for $1!

    I DID clean the front glass before taking the photos; apparently, I need to work on the INSIDE of the glass, lol.
    Thanks for looking!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!
