Oka-ay, here we have, starting at the bottom left:

Golden barb, Puntius semifasciolatus
Silver-tip tetra, Hasemania nana
Black Phantom Tetra, Hyphessobrycoon megalopterus
I think a cardinal tetra Paracheirodon axelrodi
Finally at the top, on the right is a zebra danio, Danio rerio.

Corydoras paleatus again, and I think that tetra is actually a cardinal tetra, Paracheirodon axelrodi . How far along the body does the red stripe extend Ross?

Ok plant ids are Ambulia at the front left, I think some species of Bacopa behind and a small Anubias to the right.

Aah, so you have both cardinals and neons Ross. The cardinals are the ones with a red stripe extending the full length of the body /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> The tetras in the pics below are the previously mentioned Silver-tip tetras, Hasemania nana. The "unknown" tetra is actually a zebra danio, Danio rerio.

Ok the shrimp is a cherry shrimp, Neocaridina denticulata sinensis. The "eels" are exactly what I imagined they'd be, Kuhli loaches! There are several species commonly sold with this name. The ones you have are (I think) the "true" species, Pangio kuhlii. You might not see these too often until they settle in properly. You should also see them more if you buy a group. Finally (phew!) the "sucker" is a baby Ancistrus, probably Ancistrus sp. (3). This is thought to be a hybrid of potentially several species. It'll grow quite a bit bigger than it is now and will lose much of that spotted patterning as it matures.

Hope I've helped Ross, and thanks for sharing your pictures with us! /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> I'm off for a lie down after all that hehehe....

No problem /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> One last thing.....you'll find that Anubias plant (the one with large, dark green leaves) will grow better if you take it out of the substrate and attach it to a piece of decor.

No such thing as a stupid question, only stupid answers /wink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />

You can use zip ties, elastic bands or even fishing line to tie the Anubias to the decor, Ross.

Tank is looking nice /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

i havent noticed anything with the tiger barbs. both the tigers and the angels both tend to chase thier own kind around the tank but rarely each other. Most of the time they actually aint doing much.
