78-80F, 2-4 more deg should be fine

My tanks are kept at 83, everyone seems nice and happy in them.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Tomorrow these guys would have been in QT for two weeks.

Thought I would get some snaps during their water change...













Enjoy :-)

Im actually having problems with my co2 in my main tank so have just held them here a little longer then planned.

I want to grow the small ones on a little too and is easier in this tank to do that..

Thanks, Chris

Picked up two new fish from Northants Discus yesterday.

Here they are less then 24hours after. Very happy with them!!

P.s. sorry about the state of the tank, Will be water changing in an hour.

The main tank is currently a mess. Had a dodgy regulator that couldnt hold a steady bubble count and as a result I have sad looking plants and happy look algae.

I hope to have a better looking show tank but the end of the month

Hi all,

A little video update - tanks still looks rubbish but the fish are nice and settled in there now.

My Red flower has a breathing defect I have tried to treat but cant seem to fix - seems fine in herself though and lays eggs every week.

Comments very welcome
