    Constant Vs Variable Tank Conditions

    Test Kits. Api, Jbl, Salifert?

    I recieved the proscape test kit yesterday and did most of the tests last night. It's quite technical with different quantities of water and different bottles/test tubes for different tests. I'll give it a few more tests to get used to it and do a bit of a review.

    Question What Am I??

    Its blurry but a nice pose. Considering how much time he spends lounging around its surprisingly difficult to get a decent pic. Every time I go near the tank with a camera he starts swimming round like a loon

    Thanks, and zibbee too, their a beautiful species! I'd guess 8-9 months? I got him 6months ago and he was almost grown then. That's a nice tank for him too, is that Anubias gracilis on the left? That leaf looks like a great hideout for him

    Question Is Keeping A Co2 Kit Risky?
