Does the killi not bother the shrimp, or try to jump? I read that they did both, and those are the main reasons I've not gotten them in the past. So if they dont, I'll be getting some soon :p I love the colours. Awesome tank :)

He’s inquisitive....but just a little small to bother the fully grown shrimp. I’m sure he would eat shrimplets 😋
I too heard they jump, but thought given the plant mass he may stay put, which thankfully thus far he has. To be honest I worried quite a lot but have no anxiety about finding him on the floor anymore, he never looks like jumping.
They are very characterful fish and I’d recommend to anyone, they are stunning 😍

I have found over the weeks that sitting in the chair beside this tank and viewing from the end view just doesn’t cut it. I love watching this tank so bought a little stool to sit in front of the tank.

That is a very nice shot indeed :) I love the lotus, its on my wishlist for my larger tank as well.
Thanks Wolf6, they are a lovely feature plant.

The scape is very good by itself and looks stunning with the light screen background.

Would you be able to check and tell how thick (mm) the light screen is exactly? You do not use a evolution aqua light stand, but I am trying to figure out whether there will be enough room between the back wall of the tank and the vertical legs of the light stand (mounted behind the aquarium stand) to fit a ADA light screen between them. I posted this question in another thread, but asking here since you use the light screen too.

Hi, the light screen is 8mm thick and measuring from my tank I would allow a minimum 10mm clearance, if not a little more.
What tank are you thinking of installing the Ada lightscreen on? I only ask as the supplied Ada hooks are for 6mm glass of a 60p tank and the evolution aqua tanks are made from 8mm glass so the hooks do not fit. I needed to use some ingenuity to install mine.

Thank you! It will be on a ADA 90P. I now need to figure out whether there will be enough clearance at the back.

Perfect match then :)
I’m sure they must have designed the screens to fit with the light arm, even with a trend towards on tank units.

If you want an cheaper option, some china back light screen are available now in France with all size option at great price (and with adaptable hooks too) , an 90p size would cost 200€.
