    Giraffe cichlid - nimbochromis venustus... He's a hap, not normally mixed with mbuna but hopefully he'll work out to be a bit of fry control... They're getting out of hand on the breeding front lol. Gets to about 10 inches or so, should be a real centrepiece fish once he's grown up.

    Schoolboy. Error.

    Took the day off to give the sump a good clear out... First step; turn off the return pump. Starting fiddling with the reactor so I turned the return back on. Forgot to turn it off again when I got back to cleaning the sump... I looked up after about 30 mins to see this!!

    2.4 tonnes of water later...

    Glad it cleared up.  thumbsup2
    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
    All the best

    Perhaps a big sticker on the return handle for next time eh?  *applause*

    Glad it got sorted. That Giraffe Cichlid is a stunner.
