I'll see if I can get a better picture. Unfortunately I can't describe what it is as I haven't seen it in person yet.
Say hello to Mr Purple (I know hes blue but I didn't name him). He's my girlfriends fish in a 15 litre tank with an internal filter rates for 50 litre.
The last few days he has...

I sort of did something similar with my high tech planted tank.
Had the tank up and running with co2 and liquid ferts for a month to give my plants the chance to settle in a grow. Whilst this was...
Well guys I was just looking at my shrimp tank and realised that I hadn't shown you it in a while so here goes!
Quite a few plants can be grown on driftwood, even HC can be grown in the right conditions and does look quite nice
The powerhead is there to make sure the co2 is spread out through the tank. Both spray bars are pointed upwards so I wouldn't imagine that they will cause too much of a problem. However the other...
BTW I will get around to putting a black background on it thumbs2:
I recently notice a dead spot in my tank on the top left hand side where debris would collect and plants didn't...

Can't beat a shrimp tank :D
Tbh I'm not entirely sure how effective the filtration is, would probably be fine for shrimp, but you may need some extra when you add the killifish.
Have you had a...
Went to the LFS to get more females, I must have gone on a bad stock day. Was only able to get my hands on 2 female forktails but I did get an oto (was only one they had :() . Will go back in a week...
Apparently they will wait for the "optimum conditions", this could be anything. Water parameters, temperature, enough micro food in the tank for the fry, absolutely anything. Personally I would think...
I'm not 100% sure but can't some female live bearers "store" male sperm for prolonged periods and then produce young, may be this is what has happened here.
The info from here suggests that they...
The forktails have coloured up nicely but this has revealed quite a poor Male to female ratio at 5 males to 2 females. When I got to the LFS to get another 7, I will ask for all females so then I...
Unfortunately they are such active guys its near impossible to get a good picture.
I have managed to get a short video, sorry for the poor quality.
Behaviour wise, most shrimp would get along with other shrimp (Apart from the carnivorous hunting varieties).
However parameters wise, it would be best to pick one variety of shrimp that best...
Unfortunately one of the female forktails died today, no idea why but one did appear to not have settled very well and isolated itself from the rest of the group. The rest of them are shoaling nicely...
Fine I'll tell you :)
I have a small shoal of 8 forktaill rainbowfish
Lol nope, I will give you a clue, it has blue eyes.
The first fishy inhabitants are in the tank now :D
I decided to go with something different, but before I post the identity and pictures, I think you guys should have a go at guessing first :D
No I didn't, just assumed that since it was petrified wood it would be ok. I'll take a piece out later and give it a try
The only rock I have in there is something called wood rock, like this: http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/aged-wood-rock-per-kg-p-6417.html
I'm surprised at how hard my water is though, out of the tap its 140 tds but in the tank, it is now close to 400.
Its not the substrate as that was meant to lower hardness. The ferts I used do...
I would love some galaxy rasbora but i'm worried that my ph is too low and my tds too high for them
Wouldn't my tank be too small for them?
The tank now has a colony of 30 red cherry shrimp :D
The tank parameters are quite surprising and hard and has caused me to rethink my stocking.
The tank parameters are:
