Really nice tanks :)

Be careful getting an other Chocolate though as they are really aggressive to each other.

Would love to see some shots of your fish as well :)

We actually got her from a tank where two male emeralds picked on her. O.o We haven't got another, because we are not sure whether to get another female, a male, or not getting another one at all...

Wish I could have a large tank where I didn't need a lid like in you first pic but my fish would properly jump out and my cats would defiantly go swimming lol

You can see few black mollies in these videos because they are not that new, but not to worry; I've given the mollies to a new owner because I couldn't give them the kind of water they needed. There's only fry left in a different tank with different water, and they are moving to a new home this weekend as well. :)

Liquid skills: the smaller one is also without the lid, because it didn't have one when we got it. But we don't have any other pets or children to worry about. :D

That's our striped raphael catfish named Örkki, taken today. Usually it is hiding during day time, so this was a rare occation for seeing it out of it's cave when lights on.

It's a bit plumpy, but they tend to do that if enough snails and food to eat... :P

That first tank is stunning, love your siamese algea eaters too, i have four and they are becoming a firm favorite of mine, they seem very interested in goings on outside of the tank.

Thanks. ^^ Yeah, my algae eaters are really interested in everything, as they come to my hand as well...

I use a little digital pocket camera, nothing special. Sony Cyber-Shot with 12.1 megapixels, and it actually isn't even that good of a camera! :D

Ahhaha! I just noticed it myself, I forgot to take the spoon away before taking the picture... :D I use them to give watermelon or cucumber to my fish. :blush: Apple snails like cucumber too.
