My tanks and fish

Sorry they're fuzzy, they're taken with my mobile phone.

These are the two guppies in the fry tank... I could actually see the little eyeballs of the babies inside them yesterday day, very gross! o.o They look to be very close to popping; there's a breeding box that they'll go into once they're giving birth.








This is the newest tank, with a mixture of live plants and fake plants (the fakies are the bright, bright green ones). Some pics were taken last night, the fish were added about an hour ago.
















The old tank, last night; as you can see, the plecs are in there floating in a bag getting acclimatised! The other tank wasn't ready for fish at that point...

just remember that plec WILL outgrow both of those tanks. They pretty much keep growing no matter what size tank they are in. Good luck with the baby guppies tho!

Thanks for the luck!

Yeah, I know they're going to outgrow the tanks, and it's kinda sad, but I'll have to find them a better home when they do. I've tried everywhere I know of to get otos (is that right?!), but no-one's heard of them, let alone stocks them or can bring them into the country!

They just sell the plecs, saying that they won't get any bigger >.< Such liars!

Sadly I'm nowhere near, as I live in the Middle East :p That's why I'm pretty limited in what I can get!

Though I did find some kissing gouramis in a store today, they were very cute!

Kissing gouramis grow potentially large (10-12 inches mostly).
