The severums certainly are pretty. Looks like something is taking nibbles of some of your plants. Any idea who the culprit might be?

Hi
There was a SAE in there but hes just gone into my 10 gallon because he ate more plants than algae .The tank looks a bit better at the moment,its just had a trim down to get rid of some of those see thru leaves.
I think the sevrums are realy pretty too.

it's not fair... My gold severum riped all my plants up when I tried putting him in a planted tank. How do you get yours to leave your plants alone?

I LIKE the severums!!! I have wanted a pair for a while, but I can't find ones of the caliber yours are!! I also like the gravel in your tank, what is it?? I also think some dwarf hair grass would make the golds color stand out!

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the comments everybody.The Sevrums are red spotted and iv'e been led to believe that they are available in the uk but don't come thru very often.They get fed well on a mixed diet wich i think is why they don't eat the plants(to much).I agree with the comments on adding more plants and hair grass But i am in the process of setting up a larger 60 gallon so all the new plants are going in there at the mo. will post pics when its done.

Hey how does your black ghost knife do in your tank? I got mine in my 30 and have been thinking about placing him into my planted 55 but was unsure if he would tear it all up?

No problems with him at all he loves to hide in the plants not tear any of them up.Fantastic fish IMO.

hey, thats pretty cool but 170 litres or so is only about 55 gallons. Is your tank not overstocked?

Keep up the good work.
