    London Rainbowfish Breeders?

    Hey! Does anyone know of any rainbowfish breeders in and around London? The shops I've been to all sell the same varieties (Red, Lake Kutubu, Boesmani, Splendida etc) but I'm looking for something different, as there's many more species available. Thanks, Courtney How much wood could a...

    Nymphoides Hydrophylla 'Taiwan' stunted?

    Thanks for the information! So do you reckon this Nymphoides will permanently stay small? It used to be very tall. How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? [emoji14]

    Nymphoides Hydrophylla 'Taiwan' stunted?

    Hello, I have this plant in my scape and it used to grow right to the top of the tank (2ft). Now it stops at around 10 inches. I did one big trim a few months ago because it was so large. Apparently these plants can be trained to stay small by regular pruning. Does that mean it's now...

    75 Gallon Tidy Jungle

    I'm giving away some cuttings for free because there's just so many at the moment. Nymphoides Taiwan cuttings are a few inches tall but they grow like crazy! I started with one plant split into 3 plantlets and they've taken over the whole corner. If you're close to London and you want some...

    75 Gallon Tidy Jungle

    Tank is looking good, black beard algae is still there but I feel like I'm slowly winning the war. Reduced my light period by an hour, increased the easy carbo back to 14ml and I'm doing more physical removal. Found a new, much easier way to do water changes too, got it down to well under an...

    Project 180 low tech low budget high hopes

    Hello and welcome Rob! Tank is looking good, the only thing I would say is that the rocks as they are look a bit unnatural. I think some of the edges look too blatantly cut. However, I think if you split the rocks into two clusters and put them close together it could create a really nice...

    75 Gallon Tidy Jungle

    NEW ADDITION Today I added a young male Electric Blue Acara. Supposedly they like to dig but many report this only happens when spawning. He seems to have settled in, only the smallest of bosemani giving him a bit of grief. Beautiful fish though. Basically a bigger electric blue ram, in...

    Awesome Glass Ware From IKEA

    They also had these which I was torn between. It was like a perfect little pouch within that bowl. They have one with a gold inside and one with a clear inside. Only £12.95 online, a bit more in store I've noticed. What's also cool is that they are hand blown so each one is unique. How...

    Journal Impulsive Kusa (Picture Heavy)

    I couldn't setup an ADA shrimp tank like I wanted...so I decided to jump on the wabi kusa bandwagon. It's not a typical wabi kusa grown on a clay ball, it's just substrate - inspired by Jurijs Mit JS (great guy btw). I just used regular quality compost, dragon stone and the following plants...
