Thanks! It is a peaceful tank with the exception of Cher the syno who won't let anyone in her wee cave that you see her in one of the photos. Rebus also chases Siobhan away from any courgettes or cucumbers I put in for them so I have to put in 2, where you can't see one from another so they can have one each. :)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

LOL! It's true!

Well, my albino cories and my betta didn't seem to want their photos taken last night, perhaps I'll manage to get some of them soon and I'll add them later on. :)

Thanks! It's 18" high, 32" long and 16" wide I think! If not then give or take a few inches somewhere.

Thanks for the ID on the cory - I got your reply in the other post as well.

It seemed like a good idea. Hopefully I can bring them on a bit and of not then I haven't lost anything anyway. :)


Thanks for all the kind comments everyone!

Can I just say I think this tank looks great, but, I think not having a background adds to the tank allot. The textured wall behind it is really cool IMHO... :)

LOL! Well, thanks I guess althoguh I despise the artex walls! Looks alright at the back of the tank but on the rest of the house = yuck! When the plants grow some more then you won't be able to see it as much I don't think which will hopefully cover the plug socket, LOL, and then I'll be happy.

Thanks! :)

Got some more plants in today (Some hornwort from daisycutter - recommended).

Anyway took some more photos with the extra plants in:


Full tank shot:



Quite like the bunch of plants in this corner:



Hannibal my betta, who was camera shy yesterday, and Madonna out of her skull for a rare photo oppertuinity peeking out from under the cave:




Water's still a bit "bitty" with bits of plant as this was only a few minutes after I put them in. Should clear up in an hour or so with the filter. :)

Not sure if I like it with quite so many plants in it, but I'll give it a while and see how I feel about it - can always move some out into my other tank if I decide there's too many in it.
