I was playing with the new camera over the weekend so decided to post a few new photos of some of the fish in the various tanks. Wink

The four Black Neons currently in the Q Tank...

...plus a few shots of the Otos in the 28L tank. Smile




I never tire of the Amano Shrimp in the 90L tank. Wink


Finally, some of the stock in the 165L tank. Smile

Black Lace Angelfish

Bolivian Ram

Cherry Barb

Siamese Algae Eater

Fan Shrimp

Lovely MAry - I think your q tank looks really great - that is some piece of wood! Really nice photo of the angelfish too

I take it you are starting to understand how to zoom now then Very Happy

I am. But I can't seem to zoom in as closely as I could with the old photo...it just goes out of focus. Rolling Eyes

They are indeed. Very Happy

Let's see - there's lots of Java Fern and Java Moss. Also Bacopa, Crytocorynes, Anubias nana and Amazon Sword at the back which hasn't grown as tall as expected. Also, the floating plants are Salvinia natans and Amazon Frogbit. Wink

sorry Mary I have just realised that you had put some of the plant names on the pohoto's. You know in the last couple of pics you can see a lump of some sort of plant on the right hand side that grows up and then across the top of the tank - is that the fern or the frogbit?

Also, how do you make sure that the smaller plants still get all the light they need if you have so many plants across the top of the tank? Dont they make the tank darker?

Do you mean the dense green mass covering the wood decoration? That's Java Moss. Wink

This is how it first looked when I put it in the tank and it's since spread like wildfire! I suppose I should anchor it down somehow but I kind of like its wild, unstructured look. Smile

Yep. I started off with poking it into the nooks and crannies of the decor and it just spread out from there. Some people tie it down with fishing line or thread but I couldn't be bothered with all that palaver...crazy

If you'd like some, just PM me your name and address and I'll gladly send you a batch. Smile

Well it's taken two years to get the tank to look like this so, as with many aspects of this hobby, patience is indeed a virtue. Very Happy
