water change tomorrow.
i added some "cycle" to the water in the week,and i do think it made
a little difference to the water readings
as it stands today
Ammonia 0
nitrAte 20
nitrIte 0.8
i am pleased to say that the plants are throwing down roots,as you will see in the picture i hope..
the tiger barbs seem to be enjoying swimming amongst the plants..nice to see
natural ? behaviour...even coming to the front of the tank now when
i approach,because i think they realise i am the bringer of yummy stuff
ok..enough waffle..

hmmmm well i think it looks messy in there..hmmppffffff
i put the fern in the little baskets and stuck them to the side to add
another dimension,i know they'll take a while to see if it does what
i wanted it to.
can't put my finger on how i want the plants to look...somethings nagging
me ? ? ? ?
oh and another thing...i guess perhaps it's the wood..there's a tinge to the water,it dosn't
look nice and bright...

It's off to a fantastic start, Willow!!!
Just keep staring at it, you'll figure out what's nagging you.
Looks like those plants are settling right in!!!
And happy Tiger Barbs are always a good thing!
Hooray for tanks!!!!

You could do a lot of loaches in your tank! It all depends on what you want? Something eely? Something super goofy?

more on the side of goofy....i'm not great with eely...that's why
i think i'm struggling with khulie loaches,apart from the dark stripy orange
ones.
i think i really would like some kribs,as i seem to be able to keep them
easier than rams....i can't keep rams for toffee...they always die
so i don't buy them anymore.

Doesn't England have pretty hard water for the most part? Or that's what I seem to remember reading. That might be why rams don't work too well for you.

If you want goofy then go for the botine loaches. These will be ones like yoyos, angelicus, and whatnot. They also click when they are happy such as when they are eating!

yes we have hard water here in foggy(this morning) London
not sure about the rest of the country..i think Cornwall is softer...
Ph in my tanks have always been around 7.8....and my fish store
is not far from me,so i'm guessing the same water....but nope they die,
and i get thoroughly disheartened,as i think they are such pretty fish..hayho,
cichlids(mabuna) always thrive..to such an extent i get bamboozled with fry.

almost had a melt down last night,the shower leaked down the wall to the fuse
box.......yeah i know who in their right mind would put a fuse box
under the bathroom,(was there when we moved in)and the power cut out...i nearly cried...however
OH quickly restored the situation,and the happy hum returned to my filter,
stuff the freezer full of food lol i wasn't worried about that!

Botine loaches....i'll have a lookie round for them..thanks
