Love it!
Do you ever see the barbs or danio picking on the loaches?

Thanks!

No nothing picks on the loaches. The P.cheni pics on the G.zebrinus and the barbs chase each other. But I move the barbs to my planted 4ft where there is more of them.

Definitely. And I know there will be more in a week or two because I saw spawning a week ago.

Sewellia fry -esitmated 7mm- and some unidentified fry -estimated 2mm- (too small, obviously. By the looks of it it could be half of a human fry as well :P)

Fantastic! I'd go great lengths to get my hands on some other species. There were 2 S. speciosa in a shop a while ago but went to a ''breeder'' before I found out about them :(
