I'd like to shoot a Nikon..... with a canon (not a camera, lol)
Only kidding... us Canon users like to belittle those from the dark side.

I hate camera fones.... I mean, I don't try and call anybody from my D40!

Gorilla pod? I was thinking more altitude?
If I'm right that's a tripod thing, I got a tabletop tripod. I need a real tripod.

Gorilla pod owner slates nikon! can-off! Nik-on.
read them instructions!

I shoot the d3100. I have some old phone pics on a hard drive. Needs a power supply I think. Computer is on the list. All my old fish pics are there apart from about three years. Lost them on a damaged phone

My iPad pictures are not the best.
My phone is, erm, my phone is gooooooood!
It makes calls. It receives calls, every thing a phone needs to do.

Just an update, this is February.

Bad luck with the pseudogastromyzon loaches, good luck (fair to poor) with the catfish fry. I have a nice shoal of corydoras that will soon be big enough to go in the 750. If there were more I'd sell them, I only managed to raise 12 or so, not good I was expecting many more (50ish)

Loads of new bits and bobs still no reef!

Plenty of growth in the 120, it seems strange dosing a tank of rocks with plant food? The loaches will not eat anything that doesn't grow, I haven't really observed any eating of manufactured foods.

I do believe those are tanks i haven't seen before in the corner . Are they two of the three bargains you picked up in one stop? I'm assuming the top one is the Loach tank? Do you try growing moss on some rocks somewhere on a sunny windowsill to supplement the stuff growing under your lights? you may get more bang for your buck on the ferts you use. I guess that gale force winds and flooding outside might not provide ideal sunny windowsill for the task in a British winter. Having to grow algae for your fish to eat seems like it would be really tough I can't stop growing it.

The top tank is the new one, the bottom one was the old Asian species tank.
No windows in the fish house mate, except the obscured door glass. It's better for algae control, that's the first thing I learned before even my first fish room. Sunlight grows algae in your tank. Plant food is relatively cheap, simple co2 free systems, it costs more in bulbs than plant specific feeds per year. It's quite easy to farm algae if you can kill it you can er, well you just don't kill it,

The loach tank is where I grow the green stuff and I periodically switch rocks to the qt tank. It really is a weird thing to be doing.

(Even in the summer our skies can get grey, seasons don't matter in England)

25th Feb.

This morning my fish house looked rather busy! With the edition of three tanks my original slightly off spec. plan became outdated. I've been thinking about this move for a few weeks now. It began by evicting the puffer fish, he sought residence in a Hagen B & B "across town."

I moved the stand closer to the big tank and discovered I'm out by 3/4 of an inch overall! I knew it would be close. So I modified the necessary parts to make the stand fit. The tank is now back on the stand ready for the fish to go back to his original home and with that will end phase one.

All that remains is to swing the other stand through 90' so it follows along the same wall as the puffer fish. While the day seemed pretty straightforward there were a few issues I had to overcome. General cleaning and a few unforeseen challenges ate the day away. It's difficult to work while ensuring you leave life support systems in place. At this point in time I'm in a good position to quickly complete the change and fit a few more tanks into the mix.

The pictures were taken in the order, left top to bottom, right top to bottom. I'm 100% sure that for me, this is a new record for the minimum time a tank sat still! Broken triple fold!

Hello sir.
Thanks for checking in. Glad you're pleased!

I worked right through until 04:00 Thursday morning (today uk) to nearly complete the move. The stand is now sited with tanks on, it's planted, just add fish. . .

Edit-
I've been out this morning and I noticed a single Cory fry in the tank! It survived the move!!! Not sure if it will live or not, I guess the corydoras are going in this tank.
