Thankyou Amphitrite :) I'm really loving taking pics I'm adding a better camera (as well as another tank) to my wish list.

Thankyou iamntbatman - Geddy sort of rules the tank a little he's the most out going (aggressive is the wrong word) of all the fish and well happy with all the female attention to himself :o) I'll try to get some pics of the female barbs as well - they're pretty 2.

Bertha is the fattest barb through the bogwood and always looks full of eggs and Betty is the other barb, I like the way they look like they've got rosy cheeks - maybe over done the blusher :) I like this pic of Geddy he looks well grumpy!

Been a few changes :)

Hi all,

Had a problem with cloudy water of late and was going to wait til it cleared completely but couldn't resist taking some shots with the kittens - it all started off innocent enough then got a bit out of hand! - but the fish didn't seem bothered at all by the attention.

been a few changes - got rid of background pic as I noticed a lot of tanks pictured on here don't have one and look much better ;) - put sand in for cories (wish it was darker though now it's in tank) all the life plants I had were eaten! except the grass like plant which is spreading nicely in between the tunnels - and I got another bigger tunnel at front of tank which the barbs and gouramis like swimming in as well.

hope you like

haha great pictures,bless them kitties.
i have a question for you about the filter you use please :)
how is the flow ? reason for asking is that i think i have been given the same one,
and when i tried it,the flow was really slow,it hadn't been used in ages.
i want it really just for extra flow up top,as i don't have a spray bar,and
i think i want one

Hey Willow

The filter came with the tank as part of a package deal and I really don't know much about filters and can't advise really - but in the pics I took I've got the bubbles turned down very low cause it creates a lot of air bubbles in the water and I wanted the water to be as clear as poss. - but you can turn the blue nozzle at the top and it makes more bubbles (which is how I usually have it) and there is a blue slider half way down which also increases the current (I think) I usually just have it half way. It's great for my small tank. Tell you what I'm taking pics of the fish now (my cories are hiding though:( and they usually come out in the evening but they were very active today!) :O) I'll take a shot of the filter if it helps any.

Btw out of interest I tried to see pics of your tanks and for some reason they don't show? Be nice to see some i'm sure I saw a picture of a tank uv got with flowers in it was really pretty.
