Loads of good looking houses and tanks there!

Here's some of my emergent tanks, to keep me distracted while doing the washing up!

Love the emergent tanks here, just wondering where you got the tanks from in these pics TBRO?

Also wondered why those guppys are apparently illegal in the UK?

Hey Lisa. I think they're chinese sailfin sharks - Myxocyprinus asiaticusb.

TBRO, I really like the emergent, especially the one on the right. Would love some details (in another post?)

Great looking photos and locations all!

Yep Hi-FIn China Sharks, ONly Realised after posting pix over on TFF all those years ago that you needed a Licence to keep them, Sadly Before I could do anything the Blood Parrots Killed them.

I still see them for sale Every Few Years

Such a shame the sailfins are illegal, they look amazing, sounds like they grow into proper monsters though! One of TA scapes in the Nature Aquarium book features them.

Thanks Lisa and Steve, the glass boxses are made by LSA (polish company, make all kinds of glass-wear) I got mine from John Lewis but I've seen them for sale else where. Big one is 14 cm cube, small is 10 cm cube.

The left one has a plant I found in a welsh mountain stream, the right one is my Wabi-Kusa (I have a separate blog under journals). Will update both in about 10 days time when I get my camera sorted out. The WK has changed a lot, I now have HC growing over it as the moss died :(

:(

They change quite a bit as they grow and lose that characteristic shape and colour pattern. I was going to say much more drab colourwise, but actually either some form or sex or at a certain point in their long lives there are striking red/yellow colour. Even so 3ft is a bit too big for most of us.

It's a really interesting topic. It is a good start of the day, when i look at it. Although my tanks aren't as beautiful as yours, I'd like to show you.

This is my 85l tank:

Here is my 0,2l pico tank:

This photo is very fuzzy, so I'll show you a full-shot.

And this is my 25l low-tech tank:

Sorry for the quality of the pics :crazy:
