I know there will be lots of cichlids but they carry some unusual stock (for here) as well but don't stock bettas I think from memory. It's tempting, any ideas on extra fish?

Did ask, we agreed Rams may not suit as I wanted hardy fish (plus none in stock ). Looked at some nice barbs and danios but didn't want a school of fish. Was bit of a novelty looking at fish though instead of plants!

Ended up with 2 yoyo loaches, 3 (smaller than I thought) Congo tetras and a blue (3 spot) gourami. I think the gourami should look good under the lights as it gets bigger. Fingers crossed the tetras are left alone by the angelfish or that will be an expensive snack.

All fish going well. Tank has more debris in it AFTER water change so not sure what I did there.

Probably kicked up some muck from the substrate putting the water in.

Almost suggested a Gourami. Then couldn't really decide which one to suggest. I presently have an adopted Opaline Gourami (came from someone my daughter knew) and didn't really want one particularly. It is a nice fish and does show up very well in the tank, with mine having a black background.

Previously had a 3 Spot and a male Pearl Gourami which was one of my favorite fish together and they got along well. Pretty much just left each other alone and didn't get in each others way.

Just what size are the Congos?

Delapool's 150 gallon tank

Could well be, hopefully it clears up Will try for pics tomorrow when hopefully it clears a bit more.

The tetras are about an inch long (3 for $22 so really hoping the angelfish leave them alone - so far, so good). One male and two females I think. No real colour.

Speaking of which my last black female Molly seems to have decided the angelfish need a lesson. In theory the angelfish should be favourites but I've noticed mollies don't seem to put up with much either.

There was a male Congo tetra in shop at about 1 and half to two inches. Ok colour but I think mine at ~3 inches are much better

Was bit of a novelty to see my new yoyo loaches swimming around before 8am as well (unlike the other pair). This time hopefully I can keep them from jumping out when young.

I'm tempted on a pearl gourami. This blue one has nice colour.

Yes, those Congos you have are gems. Hope the young ones grow into a nice coloration as well. I think the ones at our lfs that carries them on occassion were 8.99.

Yoyos are fun looking creatures, have seen them in a few videos and they were having a good time. Maybe you need a few more since they are enjoyable fish?

I was hoping IOS10 for the iphone would make copying files easier but it seems to have gone backwards


Tank is still clearing and I think I've been over-feeding to keep the angelfish happy.


I could get some more loaches in if I didn't have this bumble catfish getting massive. Makes the catfish and loaches look small now. Will try and get a photo on the 10 seconds it appears each day!


On the bottom left is a new yoyo loach, older one on the bottom right. Gourami and new small tetras in the very top right.


Anyways that's the fish, onto the plants! Very happy with back of tanks - plants are showing above sunken plane and filling in nicely. The centre front is ok - the hygro has decided to advance by stealth and creep along the bottom so just keeping it pruned every week.


The sides have some growing to do now all the red alt has been thrown out. Eventually I want a hedge of java fern along the front now. And then red/green stem plants on sides. Crypts, etc up the back.
