As promised - here's the March pictures. Apologies for the slight noise and poor focus - new camera should be here next week.

Lovely looking fish - you think I have a she rather than a he ? The paleness may well be down to the camera. I'm using a very old DSLR whilst I wait for my main one to be replaced and its white balance at the moment is all over the shop. I also seem to have an emo BN - as the eyes are much darker.

Thanks guys - nice to know that I've probably ended up with a female. Given how everything else in the tank is going at it like rabbits (now the Apisto. Agassizi have spawned - good job I've got it stuffed full of caves and plants) I suspect these two when they reach maturity will be at it as well. Just waiting for a pair of panduro's now to complete this.

Looking forward to talking you through my four footer - I'll be needing some advice.

One of Rudi as she's been christened. Check out that belly - cucumber is being fed in very small time controlled amounts. Getting her off it long enough to get it out of the tank is a real problem.

Nice clean pic of a clean as looking fish MarkOrm, if they are pix from your old camera it should be good
to see what you produce with new camera.
I've got to ask, what the hell is that in your profile pic, it looks kinda like a doggy- what breed?

Thats our 7 year old Westie - Zoe. I didn't chuck a snowball at her - she rolls in the snow when we get it (not bad for Cornwall !) until she can't see then bounces off everything. We've also got a 4 year old blue roan cocker, 4 cats, 2 call ducks and 3 rabbits (all rescued). Expect a post with pictures in the near future in the other pets area.

Think a bantam duck - they're about the size of a pidgeon. I'll add some photos up to my zoo thread of them tomorrow. Brilliant little characters.

Latest one of Rudi :



Check out the full tum - that's purely on algae (I've only just put courgette in this afternoon). Its a good job I do so many water changes for the Apistos - I've never seen fish poo so much !

Hi guys and girls - my wife's been ill with Labyrinthitis the last few months but thankfully it looks like she's over it finally - so apologies for the lack of updates but I'm back.

Here's the latest of my little L144 - Rudi - she's getting fatter but she's a slow grower this one.
