Hi yes it does but i had too many tanks scattered every where so had to centralise operations so to speak but also got banned from the house but now i am buying the property in question so now i can have tanks back indoors but not sure if i will? Got a few idea's knocking about so it really depends on what i decide as to whether i do put tanks back indoors.
I had 1 tank in the living room,3 in the dinning room,2 in me bedroom,1 tank in the garage and 2 in the original shed

Hi yes,i have normal vallis sorry forgotten its proper name and jungle vallis which to be honest has got to big for the tank,the leaves are twice as long as the tank,also got duckweed in there plus riccia. The duckweed i have to remove a good hand full each week the shrimps love the riccia.
Yes Mumma of two a spare power point wasn't spare for long.........
Also here is my polypterus Delhizi and me liver cat plus one of me gouramis

Hi yes Godfan and Joe5688 the first photo is the polypterus delhizi
The polypterus is an amazing fish,the are a very old species of fish,been around for a very long time. They come from Africa and live primarily in the Congo river. They are short sighted but hunt using smell,prowling just like a cat stalking a mouse. They will eat anything they can get in there largish mouth but are clumsy hunters.they are also quite clumsy in the aquarium preferring to go through the decor rather than round but they are a surprisingly hardy fish and quite easy to keep
