I hope they do too!  There is no bottom sitting or stressful acting ones right now.  They are all active and look happy.  The one little one in the second to last photo kept getting in front of the camera posing like that, there were a bunch with him doing it and I thought it was super cute and funny!  Cheesy   He is one of the smallest ones in there but he looks great and is so friendly. 

I love plants and can't wait to get some beauties to put in there, have to get the cycle done first though.  I have done some research about what kinds I can use with just regular lighting so I think I'll have a good start once I can put some in.  I need some rocks or slate also to add a more natural look for the fishies and to attach some Java fern to.   Oh, the endless possibilities!   Grin

That is such a nice tank.
How cool to have it in the wall like that.
Those babies are so cute and some will be gorgeous when all grown. Smiley

Thank gals! 

That was my husbands idea to put the tank like that since we had a storage room on the other side of that wall.  He built a stand in there and set it all up.  Its great to be able to watch the little fishes without having to hear and look at all the equipment.  The only downfall I would say to this type of set up is that its hard to arrange things and get to everything from the back.  Doing water changes isn't that hard but moving things around is tricky since you only have the top view to go by and I usually have to run around and look at it from the front to make sure everything is straight.  lol  Luckily that doesn't need to be done on a regular basis.  Smiley

Bel, this is a very beautiful set up and great idea with the storage room at the back.
Your fishies are real beauties and they will develop to be more beautiful again

My Java ferns are mostly just planted like regular plants, but I do have a chunk of driftwood with a few ferns growing on it, and a little anubias Smiley You should definitely get some Anubias too! They come in three sizes, and they make a great addition to any tank! Smiley

Thanks Hanna  Smiley  They are growing so fast!

Nossie, do you have any trouble with the java ferns coming out when you clean the gravel or anything?  That was the only reason I was thinking to put them on a rock or maybe in a little pot.   Its hard to redecorate in my tank is all.    Wink
I do want some anubias as well and one more that I can't remember the name of but I have it saved to look at later.  Starts with an A too, grr I think my children have given me some memory loss. lol 
Arrowheads are good to I read but that's not the A name ones I was trying to remember.   Grin

Nope, they grow incredibly strong and large root systems Smiley They actually grow into the gravel, so it gets this gravel platform that keeps it down at all times! Not to mention that I have about 4cm-7cm of gravel in the tank to keep the plants in place Smiley
The more gravel in the tank, the easier it is to keep the plants where they belong Cheesy

I saw a plant called Onion plant, in one of my books, it's supposed to work really well in tanks with messy and destructive vegetarian fish Wink So I thought, why not goldfish? I'm just waiting for the shops to get some of them Smiley They look just like onions! Cheesy
