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.

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...
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.

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.

Beautiful fish though. Basically a bigger electric blue ram, in...
The only time black beard algae looks nice. Still battling it.
Also filmed a 4K clip for any of you HD junkies. Whether or not you'll see it in 4K is down to Tapatalk.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
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.
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...
