Getting final fishes for the mini planted aquarium

Today, I just got final fishes that I will put into my mini planted aquarium. This small tank seems crowded already, therefore this will be the final fish stockup.

I haven’t got bottom dwellers yet for this aquarium where I have Panda corydoras for my previous aquarium. This time, I still get corydoras, and the are Julii corydoras. And another fish that I get is green fluorescent Japanese Rice Fish (Oryzias latipes). That should complete my community tank.

The video below shows a busy hour in my aquarium at dinner time. The video was taken just right after I release the julii corydoras and japanese rice fish to the aquarium after acclimating them. It will be lights off after that, and I’ve put air stone in advance.
