Your tank looks great! Good additions!
Thanks. I have been having a hell of a time finding more candy cane tetras online or locally, so I decided to start my school of sterbai cories figure they have similar temps to the tetras , and Angels.

I just lost some Sterbai Cory's recently they were very tiny when I bought them. Acclimated them the old way in open bag by adding small amounts of water over a few hours. Ph was similar. They seemed sensitive from the start. The newest Corys ( Albino and Peppers ) I drip acclimated using a small bucket inside a medium bucket dripping slowly from air tubing... no problems they are doing fine. Sterbai's are so sweet, I hope to try again. Yours are beautiful.

Just added 3 more sterbai cories to get them up to 7.

Nice tank. I think the sterbai I bought were too young, they were half the size of yours. I would buy bigger next time.
What kind of tetra in the tank with them, they are frisky!

Candy Cane/rosy tetras. I'm working on finding more but they are very popular right now even online

Was finally able to find 2 more candy cane tetras after having to go grab a new filter. Decided I was sick of hornwort making a mess of my tank so threw it out.

Looking good. The Candy Cane Tetra's are so relaxing to watch, I'm getting dizzy from watching a school of Danio's dart about. Something slower would be nice.

Good thing is they are finally out of hiding after adding the other 2. My biggest one is still the boss. Now in a few weeks I can finally add some threadfin or neon rainbows.

The Danio's have calmed down a bit since I added more plants. Look forward to seeing your neon rainbows.
Nice will start adding them in a few weeks now that I was finally able to top off my rosy/candy cane tetras
