Hi, thank you. No it is not hard to upkeep. I find it quite easy, larger aquariums tend to be more stable. :)

thats true actually, the bigger the tank the easier its seems to be, just imagining water changes though, :crazy: di
Hi, well it takes 2-3 hours a week all in all, but no buckets, i use a python to extract water and then add dechlorinator to the water flow in the aqaurium after 30 mins i add water slowly direct from tap via a hose. That part is the longest as i have to do it slowly especially in winter, temps drop from 24c down to 18-19c.

Hello Gill, how are you doing?

Yup there it is. I thought it was similar volume to your large tank (the one your wife knocked if i remeber correctly?)only different dimensions. thinking of going larger but might have to strengthen the floor. :D

Yup lots, even some mating, but the other fish are clued up and follow closely as they are after the eggs. Very beautiful colours when the males display. Kutubus are a lovely blue, males go almost black when displaying with a bright sulfur yellow stripe down thier foreheads. Also some inter species hanky panky from the various rainbows, but if i did choose to try and get any of my rainbows to breed i would not cross them. Too much of that already happens in the hobby. Ifind the dispalying mating activity happens alot more in the morning, but it does occur throughout the day.

The blues and the boesmani are my favourite even if they are the more commonly available. The blues do not seem to grow as large as some of the others either. My largest is a Male Trifasciata followed by a couple of my male boesmanis.
