hope you liked them.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

maybe i deleted them in photo bucket. would be at all surprised ! lol
thank you. :) i'm pleased with my tank now at long last,it's taken me ages.
i used to run a ten glln with dwarf puffers in,and also a juwel rekord 96 l.
however they got shut down,and the juwel had the lizards in it for a while.
the juwel is sitting empty in my living room as we speak,and as i gaze at it longingly
i don't know if i should start it up or not.
i would like to try a small salt water tank,but i'm worried i would cause more carnage
than have a lovley looking tank.
the thought of a perhaps having a pulsing zenia and some fire shrimp is almost
to much to bare.

I don't think it'll be empty for much longer ;)

I avoid looking at the salt water pictures as much as possible cos I know i'm going to want to have a go but it's just so much harder than fresh water you've really got to know what ur doing to provide the right environment for the fish - but I'm sure with ur experience fish keeping you'll be just fine and I'd say go for it. If I get the chance to do salt water in the future I'd have to go for a mega size tank cos I'd want a big puffer fish :)

If I had an empty 63l tank i think I'd love to have it devoted to dwarf honey gouramis and maybe some other dwarf gouramis all different colours (don't actually know if they mix but it would look beautiful and I'd have ottos with them. It's nice to dream
