Nice tank. Love the plants; sparse yet full at the same time. Freeze dried tubifex was kind of a throw back for me; it was a staple in my earliest fishkeeping years that I now realize I haven't used in ages! Good job, especially getting the Silversides home alive!

Thanks, that subwassertang plant gets out of hand quickly in any tank i put it in. I always have FD tubifex on hand , i like watching fish attack it. That was pure luck with those silversides, i think i knew they were in the bucket  but ignored them on purpose knowing how they are. I wish i knew how they survived.

Do you have any photographs of that banded up close? He looks awfully short and fat compared to the diaphanus types near me. Just curious, and cool video, thanks for sharing!

Thats a twenty long fishtank, these killies are showing that green sheen on top and your right they do look blunt. The young gambusia in that tank sometimes look like the killies to my eyes [ without stripes}.
