Oh, sorry for the quality of the pics. The camera's a bit rubbish, need a new one.




My two angels (Schopenhauer and Nietzsche) exploring the new plants, with some mollies knocking around.


Nietzsche trying to hide, no Uberfisch him...


Schopenhauer, so called because of his permanently grumpy (and slightly french) expression...


One of my dwarf gourami's tucking in


Everyone getting some grub.


The other Gourami, he's a real sod to get good pic of, he has a habit of turning at the last moment so all you get it a blue blur...

Love the angels. Are they gold calicos? I have an angel, but he's not very fancy-looking like yours are.

Thanks! I was told they are marbled Koi angels. I'm no angel expert, and had never really been a fan before i got into fish keeping, but these two are the very first fish i got, and they were only about an inch or so big when i got 'em. I saw them in the LFS and just loved them! They are now the centre piece of the new tank, and look lovely with the better lighting sometimes the orange seems to glow.

I've also put 2 Kribs in there too, and they seem much happier in a larger tank with more hidey holes around.

Thanks kateyoup!

I have just popped my two kribs in this tank, from the smaller one upstairs, and i though that they might need a bit of a hidey hole, so i built them a cave with some spare bits of rock and a tube of sealing stuff.

I also thought i'd show what's happened since the plant's have filled out!

P.S. I'm still sorry about the picture quility, still can't afford a new camera...



This is pretty much the finished product. might make another cave, but i don't really think there's room.



This is the new krib palace, with one of them doing a little bit of gardening.



Either Betty or Doris, i can't tell unless they are together. (Doris is bigger)

What you folks reckon, anything else i should do with it, or is it time to stop meddling...

They are indeed koi strains.
