…enough to have the wife to take wonderful pictures for me. I was just going to update on the flowerhorn

Who is starting to colour up lovely, however as usual the wife managed to get an almost complete set from the main tank-

Still together!

She didn’t however get a pic of the my new addition a tyretrack eel but that is to be expected as it spends most of it’s time hiding under a rock. If you click on the tyretrack eellink you will get an in depth description of the eel from a fantastic site i have just found called Badmans Tropical Fish.

…worse than indecision. In ths case it is to do with fish.

To keep or not to keep…

It’s all about letting go!

…is spending the Easter holidays at Chez Charlton. He is a special bear who appears to have gone everywhere in his time with Abigails reception class. However here is a special one of him looking at the fish in the lobby of Chez Charlton-

not the best pic i know, but he is always on the go and i only just managed to snap this on the phone.

I purchased… March 31, 2007

…a new addition today, he is a Gold nugget plec, and although i bought him for the big tank he is currently residing in the 4ft tank and will be there for at least a week to see if any illnesses develop as it is easier to dose a small tank with a treatment than a tank with around 400l of water.

Anyway i tried to get some pics but they didn’t turn out to good so until i can get some check out the link to see pics of similar fish.

Five things… February 24, 2007

…that have happened in the last five days-

  1. The flowerhorn has infected my new tank with whitespot
  2. I have done 50+ hours at work
  3. The car has been taken sick with an electrical fault
  4.  I have been refused a consolodation loan
  5. I have realised that my mental health is fantastic or i would have had a melt down over of the last five days

Were having… February 19, 2007

…a trial seperation as it’s just not working out at the moment. The harrassment, the chasing, the rubukes it’s just too much. So as of today Mr T-bar has been relocated to give Mrs T-bar a rest, as you can see she looks completely worn out-

Mr T-bar is now in the new tank with Oscar, Severum, the 2 juvenile severums-

and another new adition Petal my juvenile Flowerhorn who is investigating Mr T-bar in this photo-

I also have some new additions for my other tank but but some are quite difficult to photograph but here is one that the wife was able to snap-

Just some… February 15, 2007

…on and this is where the fish tank stand and hood is up to…

…as you can see it’s still a bit rough around the edges but for the most part it is complete. There have been times over the fortnight when i thought i would never get it done, even to the point of almost taking it outside and building a big bonfire.

However persistence paid off and my first joinery project is almost ready to go, along with new external filter from Hydor (the prime 30) also in the picture. Hydor also do an external heater which attaches to the pump however i have been informed there are some small glitches with the product so i won’t be purchasing one just yet although i would like one in the future as it would mean less in the tank to distract from the fish.

I got… February 5, 2007
