its been so long since i was here and the membershp has changed so much i thought i may as well say a fresh hello :) 
 
im mark , i used to run a 450 litre cichlid tank , but fell on hard times with the recession and the building game being so messed up and had to sell up to make ends meet . with the selling up my heart wasnt inthe hobby or  the forum any more and i stopped visiting . now though i am no longer self employed and have a decent job working on the railway , things are much more stable and i am setting up another tank .  looking forward to getting back into this hobby and hopefully being an active and helpful member of the forum .

Small fish with shrimp, hmmmm I have recently fallen in love with threadfin rainbow fish and plan on trialing them with shrimp, I think the combo will work well. Endlers are ok with shrimp as are Khuli loaches.

I loved my Threadfin Rainbows and they don't bother anything, small guppy fry included :)

Great minds
 
 .
 
But seriously I have been looking at a few types of rainbow fish along with blue eyes and since they are native to Australia I think I am mad to not be keeping more of them.

I do like the Blue Eyes :) I also like Gertrudae Rainbowfish. This they may be another species of Blue eye but I love the patterning on their fins!

would make a lovely planted tank
 
I'm actually thinking of getting a big shoal of the Gertrudae's in my 30" long tank when I set it up for real. Will be planting it out and everything and will have a little secret fish in it :p My little Zebra Pleco(hopefully) :)
