    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.

    thanks for adding all these for me.

    the tetras have a full red stripe mostly but a couple have it only half way up there body.
    they where all bought at different times because ghost a field day with them in his tank. so i moved survivers and replaced the missing few.

    thanks for all the help again.

    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

    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!

    Ross, do you find that the Tiger Barbs and the Aneglfishes get on ok? Ive been told in the past not to keep them together cos the Tigers are really nippy?

    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.
