Hi all,

My Name's Steve. I'm a Londoner who emigrated to Manchester 9 years ago following a nutty Bolton bird up North. Never looked back since.

I keep fish and ride my motorbike for fun. Not at the same time.

Hope to have fun with you folks.

Steve

In response to the Q's.

I've got three tanks.

One for BNs (only 2 juvi BNs at the moment. I'm probably going to put one of these in my wifes tank to clean up algae), sterbai corys and dwarf rainbows.

My wife's tank with a pair of gouramis, loads of guppies and platies and a common whiptail.

A tank full of baby guppies and platies with a L144 juvi BN to keep it clean.

Heres a few pics of my fish.




And my bike.


Hope you enjoy.

Curby, I'm looking for a few more BNs to start up some breeding groups so will probably be in contact with you soon.

Steve
