Rotalla wallichi £4.50
Total - £101.49
Just add fish
Sorry about the average pics, i have a canon 550d but dont know how to use it yet :lol:
This has been a bit of a learning curve as never used stone or shrimp before.
The tank has been wet for about 3 weeks now, been pretty lucky with algae, not so lucky with hydra... ongoing battle!!
I now know that the substrate i chose is a pain as it has no weight to it and lifts with the slightest of flow. HC likes to grow on it though.
The 'green stone' i chose is too green
it blends with the HC, they did a blue stone aswell that i will try next time.
Bare with me on the Rotalla Wallichii it just got it yesterday from TGM.
All comments welcome.
Also just bought 5x 5 banded barbs for my 55g.... LOVE THEM!!!!! Going to get 3 more.
