So a few photo's from the last few days of the 180 tank, although it's been freezing outside the sun has been out lighting up the middle section of the tank so have been trying to catch it's effect,

Stocking in this tank includes a few of lots of different types of smaller fish that I got because I liked them, however I am now a lot better than I was 3yrs ago when I bought this tank at both research and impulse control! stocking for big tank is slightly better - less different types of fish anyway although some have been moved across between the tanks,

Types of fish in the 180 include leopard danios, glowlight tetras, ember tetras, African banded barb, phantom tetra, silver hatchetfish, harlequins, hovering loach, 1 twig cat, 1 unidentified ancistrus might ask for an ID at some point, and about a dozen cory cats - Sterbai (not done so well shan't get any more) gold laser (ok so far 6 months) peppered (ok so far) and Schwartzi (new last week) oh and 1 pair of Boesmans rainbow that might need moving if they get much bigger.
To start with here is the female rainbow

Great pic of the Leopard Danio, considering they're always on the go :)

...and how about some FTS?

Well done with the Danio shot, they're not the easiest creatures to take pictures of.

Looking forward to seeing the full tank shot... he says, tapping fingers... waiting, still waiting. 😴
