I forgot to mention that I've turned the temperature down to 27 and the temperature is 26 at the furthest end of the tank (that is using a glass thermometer so it could be upto a degree out but the thermostat/heater is set to 27) ... Do you think there could he an issue?
I am heading out at around 11 so there's a chance you won't be able to respond in time so I will do a quick search online and refresh the factual information

    So, I didn't get any Gold Barbs due to the LFS Stevie and I visited not having any but if what they say is true, and I feel like they were genuine in their claims, then I have 14 true Pentazona Barbs Puntius pentazona (as opposed to the 'look-alike' and 'false Pentazona'Puntius hexazona) in this tank now! and 2 Kribensis too :)

    I bought a ceramic plant pot for the Kribs but they are just in the process of exploring their tank at the moment. The Barbs immediately started shoaling and look incredible! I love them! I've tried to get some good photos, I think the best photos will come when the lights get turned off as the camera I have isn't too good without the flash... Anyway, here are the new additions!!!!  *grin* *grin* *grin* *grin*

    I just hope the Krib pair don't wipe out the whole tank when breeding! :(  *blink*

    I'm going to create new replies below to add the images to ... Hopefully it works! There seems to be issues recently with uploading images (especially more than one image at a time- I've had to upload an image then modify the post and upload another one and so on).

    Sounds like a very successful shopping trip  *grin*

    I really like those pentazona barbs. I bet they look even more stunning in real life!

    I will be, thanks! :)

    I've got a lovely tangle of wood that I'm currently soaking to go in the big tank, that'll provide a fair few more hiding places, especially when I can attach some Java Fern to it all :)

    And I can always look into adding another tangle or other decor pieces :)
