    Stepping back into the hobby - Lido 200

    Thanks for the tips, here is an update here is a FTS- I couldn't be more happy with how things are growing in at the minute, not only that the fish I have are getting on great, this is one of the most enjoyable set ups I've had in a long while: forgive the poor quality iPhone pics, I don't...

    Nice, that is a very pretty Betta, I'll take a better tank shot tonight when I get the tripod out, the others were taken whilst holding the camera and I don't have steady hands!
