Second tank has loads of female guppies plus inherited fancy goldfish and minnows.
Hi, i'm assuming Worthing is in the UK??, if so, you will probably find it hard to get pool filter sand. Personally i use kids play sand. If you go with this, try and get a light coloured one(my preference), i think they look better. Also you have to wash the sand really, really, really well. It stops the tank getting cloudy at the start. It also get rid of light floaty sand that causes cloudyness....
