Stunning!  I love the harlequins against the greenery, just shows you don't need loads of different fish, sometimes it's better to stick to one type of shoaling fish :)

    Wow! Mick, what else can I say.  Absolutely amazing.  Moss just doesnt happen for me, maybe when I invest in co2. I'd so love a huge clump of it growing like yours and your friends.

    Harlequin rasbora!
    WOW!
    Just how many?!
    What does he do at head-count time?
    I count daily and had to split up 12 to 2 tanks of 6. Just couldn't handle trying to keep track of so many in one tank!
    Obsessive? Can't abide the idea of 'losing' any and not realising!
    All these tanks look great.
    Good idea, Dee to get evryone posting full tank pics.
    I'll have a 'go' after next wc/algae scrape/window cleaning!

    the glass out take pipe you have there, what are the benifits of them as i have seen them but know nout about em.
    nice wild looking tank there.
    cheers.

    Basically the Glass out take allows a more gentle flow. If you push a high volume of water out through small holes on a spray bar you plants tend to get blown around, where as a large diameter out take with the same water volume, creates a softer flow, still the same turnover, but with less pressure.

    A few more shots of my 'Keeper Tanks'. I call these my 'Test Bed Trio' I mainly use them for trying out different scapes, plants and experiment with different ferts and C02 injection levels, as well as certain fish and inverts. They come in real handy, and are very easy to look after and changing things around, takes very little time or effort.

    Enjoy!

    I also collect heaps of different mosses, from all over the place. Some I find myself, some I swap and some I purchase from other hobbyists. Usually I only get very small amounts, say a thimble full, so I need a small tank to help grow them on and to see if they will thrive under water, allot of my mosses usually start out life on land. it just happens that some do very well underwater as well.

    So you think people will actually post their tank pics after seeing yours, catfish?!?!?!?

    Truly stunning  *shock* - I actually prefer the moss tank as it was, but still brilliant.

    Anyway, here's mine - I've currently let it "moss out" & not trimmed to give my berried CRS as much chance as pos should anything hatch, so it looks a bit messy at the mo.

    I'll soon be getting a tank just for CRS, which I plan to fill with different mosses - are you propagating mosses with a view to sell? ;)



    125ltr - Cherry Shrimp

    72ltr - Cherry Shrimp

    50ltr - Crystal Red Shrimp

    186ltr - SAE, Whiptail, Otos, Kuhli Loach, RCS, Amanos

    240ltr - Silver tipped tetra, Cardinal tetra, Otos, Amanos
