    The tank's finished now, so time to start a thread.
    If I'm correct, all current inhabitants occur in the rio Paraguay.

    Stocking:
    -1m/3f Apistogramma borellii
    -12 Hyphessobrycon eques
    -7 Corydoras hastatus
    I cheated with the plants, since I couldn't find a list of plants from rio Paraguay. I'm quite positive none of the plants are correct (except maybe for Egeria and Eleocharis), but they're doing well. Anyway, list of plants:
    -Egeria densa
    -Heteranthera zosterifolia
    -Echinodorus tenellus
    -Echinodorus sp.
    -Eleocharis acicularis
    -Salvinia natans
    -Hydrocleys nymphoides

    Thanks!
    Yes, I did. It was the only good looking male they had. He's doing really well, developing beautiful fins and colors.
