Lainey, that is absolutely gorgeous!! You've made a beautiful job of it! How are the puffers getting on?

Thanks kate.
the famous five are doing really well :)
they do prefer live food,however i am not always able
to get to the fish store,so the next best thing is frozen,i use the
syringe(sp)as it makes it look a little more real for them as i wiggle
the nozzel and most days they take there worms straight
from it,once they drop to the floor they usually don't bother
with them.
bought them a new light,so it brightens the tank a bit nicer,cost me
over thwenty quid,but i don't drink,smoke, go out,so i don't

I'm glad to hear they're doing so well. Using a syringe to feed them frozen food is a fantastic idea! I know how picky they can be.

yeah they can be a little picky,but the little guys
are on the whole good,so i'm lucky,and it helps me feed them a little
bit at a time,otherwise it all goes to the bottom,and then the snails get it.
how are your fish getting on, all well i hope ??

y'know...I'd never even thought of a syringe and the farm I work at keeps em on hand for emergencies!!!!

i find they are very handy for directing a squirt of worms.
