Naw. Yours are cool looking. Mine are just those boring standard pest/pond snails. And bigger. And hungrier.

Ughhh. The excellence of this tank makes me want to scrap my tank entirely.
Well done mate, love it

This is the most beautiful nano I've seen in quite a while. Thanks for the detailed journal as well, it was an enjoyable read.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.

Definitely one of my favourite nano fish. Most people say they're shy and skittish but my group of 4 are very active and are usually up near the front of the tank. Once they fully mature the pattern and colours on these are hard to beat.

Good job and nice photos! I think they are my favorite tiny fish ever.

Cheers

PS, I have a few of them, and I love how they mix and match between schooling with the bigger (small) fish, hanging together, or just wandering off alone.

Thanks and yes I would highly recommend them to anyone. Would be interesting to see a tank full of 25-50..

How long have you have the Danio? I want to get some but most of the description said that they are newly born and not mature so just ugly brown

Casualties over the months due to jumpers/getting caught in the eheim skimmer/filter intake.. It's a little sad finding fish and shrimp dead via jumping but I love the rimless/no cover look too much.

Real nice tank. I like those Danios as well. Ur spot on with how they act. Mine mingle with the ember tetras and are more out going for sure. Lost 3 of 5, not sure why. Picked up 6 more hoping they do ok. They look healthy but so did the others I lost.

Just realised after reading through this again, that map was Australia. I'm only excited because I am Australian.
Sorry, unrelated to tanks.

Nice photos there mate, tank is looking amazing. So damn clean!

Have you ever tried using Vegemite as a base for DIY CO2?

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.
