8ft tank for starters

Right side of 8ft

180 Litre community tank

400 litre Lake Malawi (awaiting stocking)

8ft with 200 litre fry growout and 70 litre shrimp/oto breeding

Cheers Mike

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.

A job well done, Mike! Your sevs and aro are quite gorgeous.

Sent from my desktop or phone or whatever else I am holding on to  2
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.

Hi Mike, those are absolutely stunning tanks - all of them, and I love your gold sevs. Are those real plants you have in with them, because if so, I want to know how you do it - mine ripped my plants apart and I've had to opt for silk ones instead.

Anyway, welcome back to the forum :D

Thanks folks,
Yes they are all real plants, they all come from my 180 litre planted community tank the Vallis goes wild in there and I transplant it every now and again, Ive found the Sevs leave the Vallis and Amazon swords alone therewas 1 plant I had in the tank that got stripped in seconds.
They are pretty well fed too which I am sure helps, There are 6 babies in the growout tank.

I envy your circumstances that allow you to have so many large tanks!

Cheers Falina, it took alot of convincing the ball and chain especially when the 8ft tank was empty and I buggered off to the states for a month and then another month cycling it, but when she found out how much it cost new and how much I paid plus she loves it now its full of fish.

Out of interest, what are you feeding the sevs?
