    Nope, Fujifilm bridge camera. The light though leaves images looking grainy, or grainy and too bright. This is the next best photo I took, not that great either:- It's not helping that the glass needs cleaning. lol Between my kids and the dogs nose, it gets a bit smeared very quickly. lol...

    Nothing at all, but need to restart the ProFito again (Easylife). Photos aren't going to come out any better sadly, as the lighting stinks for photograph. It's an Arcadia EcoAqua 30watt spotlight, the tropical one, which has red and blue LEDs in addition to the white ones, giving quite a pink...

    No such luck Lindy, it's a religion/faith thing, so I stand no chance of changing her mind. lol Ade

    No room, the 20 odd vivs are filling it all... lol Agreed she's been mean not letting me hide it more. She's seriously insisting on it been right out at the front though. I only stuck it there whilst I was adding the wood and new plants too.. :( Ade

    Poison dart frog and tree frog vivs.

    Well, that last one was delivered to this address by the shop I bought if from and set up and decorated here. The rest though, well they were wrapped in bubble wrap and given polytyrene 'feet', then put on a flat bed trolley to load and unload into a Luton type van with a tail lift. It wasn't...

    It's my wife's Bast statue, and I'm not allowed to remove it sadly. lol Ade

    I just wanted to update this as finally done something with this tank. First off, I've gone lower light on this to remove the need for CO2. Took off the white LED. The plants in there now will all tolerate the lower lighting. I also bought a massive bit of redmoor from Aquaessentials, lovely...

    Poison dart frog and tree frog vivs.

    Ooops, sorry, after moving house I didn't do much with my aquarium for a long time, so haven't been on here in a long time! Anyway, correct that captive bred dart frogs don't have the toxins. You have to be careful though with wild caught or wild farmed ones though for at least 12 months after...

    Well, I have some better news. All but 1 fish actually somehow survived 3 weeks in a bag (I should mention it was a koi bag, inside a fish box... lol). They're back in their tank now looking much happier. Started rescaping as well. No new plants as yet, but my wife built a hill of gravel...

    Thanks bud. With any luck I can get it looking even better this time. Ade

    Due to moving house, time to wrap this journal up. The tank was torn down, leaving only the substrate in. The plan was to get it all back up and running pretty quickly, but the best laid plans and all that... Plants are quite dead and dried up as thanks to rushing no water got put in the bag...

    The 2 pots of ludwigia repens 'rubin' arrived today, so planted this now:- Should look good once it gains more colour. Ade

    Another tweak on the way, in the form of 2 pots of ludwigia repens 'rubin' ordered from TGM yesterday. These will be going in the red painted area in this image, the purpose been to cut through the green a bit (the pink of the alternanthera isn't strong enough to do this), and also to take the...

    Best shrimp for my tank?

    Sorry to disagree, but blue pearls were bred from neocaridina cf. zhangjiajiensis rather than neocaridina heteropoda (cherry shrimp), so are actually kin of snowball shrimp rather than cherry shrimp. Not that it makes much difference, care is identical, as is their prolific breeding. The one...

    Had a play with my camera, setting it myself rather than using auto, this was about the best pic out of the ones I took:- I moved the flow pump once again, basically because I didn't like how it flattened a part of the background planting. Ade
