That's pretty smart! If a little dumb! A homing pigeon! You're gonna get caught, cos it'll fly straight back to you! (Dart and tag, captured)

Lightbulb



Led upgrade (before/after)

Hidom 6500k led lights, 12w per unit vs 30w per tube.
Much tidier, much safer!
Designed as clip on but modified angle aluminium for overhead mount.
Look nice and they work! Cheap as chips!
The old lid cracked so I had this as a temporary fix until the tubes expired.
Not exactly safe but functional!


Evidence!
Led growth rate, now shooting leaves per day!

(I know!)

AND ITS MID MARCH!
Talk about late to the party
Fashionably late or a tardy fool?


I hope these things last a few years, the units are actually quite nice looking, I may get more. . .
They are so cheap now, not like years ago when they arrived!
Nowadays EVERYBODY is selling them, not just a few top boys.

(Definitely upgrading the rest of my tubes, I thought I was cutting edge with my ballast free starters!)

Talking New things!

Pair of L204 P. albivermis (Flash plec)




Too nice to leave behind!
June 13th 2015, lovely fish, couldn't leave behind! Perfect for one of my tanks!
Not quite an impulse buy but I didn't set out to get them! Got a good deal on the pair. Happy man. . .

Red Cherry Shrimp!


21 shrimp from a private trader (gumtree) 1 each, paid for 15! Great deal!
1 female died while berried, think this may have been caused by the move and the water parameters changing? (A slow change but. . .)
Unsure.
A few more females are successfully holding eggs with apparently no problems. Happy days. I got these bank holiday Monday, 25th may.
(Currently living in the skimmer section of the reef build! Hopefully I can build the reef soon!)

Thanks for watching!
