Muito bom Joe, pena teres perdido os peixes :(

I know whats its like in Portugal, when I lived there (small village) there were quite a few long power cuts, I couldn't setup a tank over there without worrying about it all the time, specially in winter.

Glad to see everything is back on track :) keep us posted with more photos, nice cherries.

Parabens e viva o Porto :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :lol:

Hello,
Got some news... a new addition to the tank .

Aplocheilichthys normani -Norman's lampeye, a small and beautifull killie, perfect for planted tanks.

Here's the pics

Choosing it's territory (I think)

Great fish and the tank's looking nice!

From what I've heard Steve, while most killies will jump if they possibly can, Lampeyes don't. It may be due to the different habitats as these usually shoal in larger waters like tetras rather than living in small ponds and streams like most killies.

They're great looking little fish! Do you find they have a tendancy to jump? I've been told this a few times by different people.

This little and very nervous fish will jump... I already lost one!!!
