    Got the camera out the other day after a Atherton change and snapped some pics .. This tank has stayed fairly much the same for last 3 years. Very low maintenance. The planting is haphazard but suits. Stocking has changed a little over time. It would be nice to get some nicer and more variety of Rainbows in there. I have what they call Eastern, splendid and striped ( exquisites ). They're expensive in shops and the bosemani, blues and reds around me aren't that great Barbs- 7 Golden, about 15 cherry but did have lots more ( had a few breed and grow out when the Java moss took over the tank for a while one time) My Odessa barbs are my favourite 5M and 3 F which I know is a wrong ratio but aggression is only a bit of ' chasey'. They've been in the tank for over 3 years and all males are beautiful coloured with dominant male just a little deeper in colour. The females can give as could as they get. Then there A few 5 stripes and a couple of checkered which I'd like more of as they are quite hidey And. 3 Sae to clean up and a small school of danios excuse some of the photos I managed to do some creative cropping somewhere in the process of sizing and uploading

    Next issue of the magazine features Barbs so you picked a good family of fish.

    Ha! Cant kill a weed Mark! - trust all is well with you yes the barbs are great and good price for the colours and personality, and hardy. Gonna chuck some groups into breeding tanks outside when it warms up. Just for giggles and to get a few survivors to grow out and put inside. I do wish the selection of rainbows around now was as good as was a few years back though

    We now have at least 3 more gold ancistrus than before as I can see them scooting about. Could be more as the tank is heavily planted. Both parents are back out and about so there won't be a second batch any time soon. his is the first time the golds have bred in the 5 or so years I have had them. The browns will breed several times in a row then stop for a few years before breeding again so I have 10 - 12 brown ancistrus of varying sizes zipping in and out on the substrate. The Odessas have been at it again too as I can see more of their fry out and about at higher levels. A few always survive being eaten due to the plant mass. We are about to clean out the filter (don't do it very often) so will have to be careful there are no ancistrus fry in the casing as I have almost lost fry down the sink in the past!
