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

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.

Mike

Looking really good! :)

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?

They get prawns,squid,cockles, tetra prima catfish pellets,cucumber and even a bit of chicken liver ( for the Polypterus but the Sevs take anything)
