    "Natural" water

    I fly fish for trout, they are very sensitive to water quality. The lakes I fish are gin clear and the one river is a classic chalk stream with a good flow. Is such water useable in an aquarium? Tom

    Fry in the Stream

    Most of my plants came today so could help starting this journal. I'm converting my bare bottom fry tank into a mini aquascape, and for a change I've gone for a stream/river look. I've ordered some lovely looking sumatran driftwood that look like fallen branches and roots. A mixture of java and...
