    escaping shrimps

    I've had a few amanos running round the house but none of the cherries. I think if my lurcher saw them and worked out where they were coming from he would be sitting in the tank in seconds!

    live food culture....

    Interesting. I have an old bucket in the garden with some mosquitos larvae. This was a fluke but I'm guessing they would be good to feed my fish. Only problem is how do you get them from the bucket to the tank? I'd say leave it as is? If you're finding things are living in it then it must be...

    Your Sneakiest Tank Inhabitants?

    Ooh, interesting. My otis are real show-offs. Always out and about, as are my CPDs who always try to catch my attention when they see me, in case I give them food. The black widows on the other hand are a completely different matter. In the morning before I go to work I add my ferts and do a...

    Hypothetically, if you could choose only one..

    Ooh, that would be a close call between Celestial Pearl Danios and Ottos. As for plants, I'd either go for Blyxa Japonica or Pogostemon Helferi. I hope that I would never have to make that a reality though!

    ADA LED nano lamps

    I just saw this via a link on twitter. Coming this June. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid= ... =1&theater I don't know what I think about LEDs yet but I like the slimline look a lot.

    Which Aquascaping tools?

    I had a pair of tweezers from some un-named company. They felt fine and were made from stainless steel but the tips were a bit too large and it was hard to get small plants to stay in the substrate. As for scissors you want sharp. If they aren't sharp you will crush plants while pruning rather...
