Cheers for the nice comments folks, I'm quite proud of this one, it's definatly the best tank I've set up so far.

Oh, and Julie, the tank is 100cm/40" W x 40cm/16" D x 50cm/20" H and the angels are about 4"/10cm and 3.5"/8cm body top to bottom (not inc. fins.)

I'm hoping that now the angels are in a suitably large tank that they are gonna shoot up now, cos I love the look of a really big pair of angels, they look so stately!

I'll try and get some pics of the rainbows, but they are even trickier than the barbs to shoot, and at the moment they are still in their juvie colours which, whilst pretty, are not a patch on what will happen when they mature a little bit.

I can't wait to get the cories in there and have a full tank!

Thanks again for the encouragement folks! I've been very busy with the new job just recenty, but i have had a chance to pop into the LFs today and get some cories at last! Sadly the long expected shipment of "exotic" cories ran into troubles somewhere over the atlantic and never made it to the LFS, but they did have some other cories in from a different supplier, which i have snapped up...

I got me some very pretty C. Axelrodi, 6 in total, and they are just settling in now. I'm really pleased with them, they re lovely little things, and already being quite active despite only being in there for about 10 mins or so. I'll post some pics when i have the camera charged!

Sorry, just read that last post, I meant the camera battery, not the fish!

On first reading I thought you meant the fish, and was going to give my condolences - glad to hear it was the camera you were talking about Tobes!

Looking really beautiful! I adore the cories, as you well know!

In reference to your earlier post, yes I think that the angels are in a fine sized tank. Certainly they should be very happy now. :)
