    Low Light Nano Shrimp Scape.

    I started this scape nearly two weeks ago. It's a 35cm opti-white tank which is 35x22x25. I'm using a Dennerle corner filter (which might get replaced for something a little more powerful) and have CO2 via a 2kg fire extinguisher. Substrate is Colombo florabase and unipac zambezi sand, with...

    Steve's Optiwhite Nano Iwagumi - Ikita Kaseki

    After I moved house last month, I decided to re-do my very neglected opti-white nano. I went for a wood scape, using some redmoor and manzanite wood. Unfortunately, due to lack of certain hardware/CO2 it's already gone pearshaped :lol: Anyhow, I've decided to rip that down and do it again. I've...

    Steve's 60cm - " Old Stump On The Hill "

    This is a tank I set up some weeks ago, and had a few problems with (mainly diatoms and GSA). I added CO2 on Friday, after aquiring a regulator from a forum member, and today I've given it a good prune and tidy up :) Still got some bad diatoms on some leaves, so please ignore that ;) Specs...

    Ember Tetra - Any Photos Of Large Shoals?

    Bit of an odd request, but I'm trying to get an idea for what a large shoal of Ember Tetra look like. I want to stock my 90cm/150 litre tank with a single species shoal of embers. Initially I was thinking 30, but after some comments from people I might go more... Perhaps 50... I'm looking to...

    New Aquascape - "patience"

    Spent the last 3 weekend setting this up :) It's taken a lot of fiddling and a lot of seperating plants into individual stems, but I got there in the end! I need to get my CO2 setup now, but everything else is in place. I'll be doing 50% water changes 3 times a week for the next few weeks to...

    90cm/150 Litre - "patience"

    I've spent the weekend before last stripping down my tank which had gotten very neglected for various reasons. I then spent last weekend playing with hardscape and getting it sorted out. I was having real problems with gaining a sense of height and depth, but I think I've cracked it now...

    Approx 5 - 8 Chestnut Apple Snails For Sale.

    Hey all. I bought these recently on ebay but I'm finding they're decimating some of my plants! They seem to leave tougher plants alone and just munch through my delicate stems! As such, they have to go. I'm just asking £3 for them all, to cover postage/packing. I'm selling approx 5 - 8 (I...

    My New Planted Shrimp Tank

    I set this tank up about 4 weeks ago now, and the shrimp have been in there for getting on for 3 weeks (it was a mature filter, mature substrate). The tank is just for shrimp. At the moment there are approximately 30 cherries in there (the one pregnant female my friend sent me has dropped at...

    [sold] Riccia - Golf Ball Sized Clump For £1 Inc P&p

    Hey all. I'm selling on some Riccia as I have quite a bit growing in my shrimp tank. Riccia is a floating plant, but it can be tied with fishing line or a hair net to stones to make a cool bush like effect. It will not root to the rock like moss or ferns though. In this pic you can see the...

    7gal Shrimp Only - "forgotten Glade"

    Following on from some of the guys on UKAPS, setting a fine example, I've decided to setup my own shrimp only tank. I have re-scaped my 27 litre Aqua 40 "cube", re-using the existing Eco Complete, which I doubt has any nutrients left in it, mainly because it's a dark substrate. Specs: 27 litre...

    Ideas For A Rio 180?

    I'm considering what to do with my Rio 180 that's sitting dormant at the moment. I wondered about keeping something different to the normal community/livebearers I've kept up untill now. My first thought is some fish which are a little larger than your average community fish. Maybe something...

    Yar180 (yet Another Rio 180)

    After thinking it through I decided to abandon the 4ft tank idea and go back to my Rio 180, as I prefer the proportions and it looks a little nicer. Glass is in similar condition to the 4ft so no difference there. Anyhow. This is still a work in progress. I think I've got the hard...

    Babies... Mystery Solved

    I found one of my guppy (red lace snakeskin) females dropping fry at the weekend and managed to get her into a breeding net. She'd dropped 4 or 5 before I managed this and I'd seen most of them get munched by other tank occupants. Harsh, but a good natural food I guess... Anyway, she had a...
