Georgia native tank

Went down to the farm yesterday to gather some rocks and gravel. Saw a bunch of fish. Also ordered some plants this morning since I didnt see anything likely in the creek.
To be continued.....

Eheims don't push a lot of water - I had one and I wasn't convinced it was worth the money.
I've always had trouble with Val for some reason, except this one tank I had that received some direct sunlight.

My last aquarium started off as a Walmart kit and I had replaced everything but the tank within three months. This setup seems good at the start. I may end up with a different light and cover though.
I’ve been staring at the water all afternoon.

So I wasn't really kidding . The two fish in the other picture were stoneroller and a yellowfin shiner. The fish in this picture looks like a stoneroller to me and the behavior you are talking about is consistent with that as well.

I thought you were kidding or it was an inside joke. Based on the range map and a few pictures of juveniles I have found it is most likely Campostoma pauciradii.
It seems to me from the photo it's hard to understand exactly what kind of fish

So, I found a pea size snail in my tank this morning. The plants have been in there for ten days. I rinsed them and looked for snails but I know I could have overlooked one. Surely it didn't grow to pea size from an egg in ten days. The substrate includes several shovels full of gravel from the creek bottom, I rinsed the silt out but I'm guessing that is where it came from.
The yellowfin shiners are really nice aquarium fish, I think. Very active and fun to watch. They get excited and start hitting the surface looking for food as soon as the tank lid opens.
I also think there is a tiny fleck of gold on a piece of quartz visible in this image. : )
