Cost £195 from ebay included the cabinet, lights and covers, filter, air pump, and two heaters.. Happy days.!!

Cheers Jim didn't realise that I could up load pictures straight from my computer. Sorry the second one is on its side but hey ho.

This is going to be my temporary display tank as we are hopefully going to be moving again before the end of the year when we have found a suitable house. (selling two to buy a one with a bigger garden). So moving all the fish from my now display tank into this one together with their filter and then setting up my old display tank as my new grow out.

cheers

Jon

Congrats on the new(ish) tank cheers

Have you planned what's going in it or are you still deciding Question

If the problem is space in the gallery then I think Curby has to sort it out.

It is possible to load a picture from your computer straight to a topic if you want to do it but need help pm me.

Quick update.... its been about 5 weeks since I moved the fish into the new tank. My old 4 footer has now become my grow out tank.

Since the fish have been in it I have had one lot of BN fry (about 2-3 weeks ago). There are 3 male BNs in the tank and 5 females, 2 of the males are curently sitting on eggs.

Besides the other fish in there, (neons, harleguins, platies, guppies ets..) there is also 3 pairs of Kribs in the tank, one pair has just had young, saw them out for the first time today, with another pair also guarding some eggs.

Guess something is good in the water..... Happy days.!!  Pictures added 3813960834
