Lots of great fish shots in this vid. Up close and personal with the uncommon and rare species I keep in my 55 gallon. You get an eyeful of the male Pseudosphromenus cupanus (Brown Spiketail Gourami), purpley-orangey Chela dadiburjori (Orange Chela), my pair of drab-but-interesting Badis sp., and in the background you'll see a small bunch of Tanichthys albonubes (White Clouds) scooting about. The only fish you won't see in the vid is the male Dario dario - "The Scarlet Badis."
Still have no idea what species of Badis I'm keeping in there, but I think they are both females because they are rather drab. Male badis tend to be much more vibrant. These are still pretty small, maybe they are Dario species. If anyone knows what they might be, let me know. You get a good look at 2:00-2:50.
As for plants, I caved in and added some Valiserna gigantea to the back of the tank. This species isn't from India, but ah well It was just looking way too sparse back there. The lily leaves have holes in them thanks to the spiketails which I've recently discovered will chew on them if I haven't fed them in a few days. Though they will also nibble algae. And boy have I got algae in abundance, but hey, so does mother nature.
