    I pulled this tank down (was fully planted) yesterday and moved my maingano colony into it. Added 5 clown loaches.

    Will add more rockwork & broken pots when i find suitable ones. Also will be adding some electric yellows at some stage.

    But this is it so far

    Yep 93, i just put it at 90, by the time ya take water placement of the decor its actually prolly a bit less..but close enough.

    i'm struggling to reach the bottom back of the tank now let alone a taller one *L*

    Ta guys

    The electric yellows will go in once i can find some good quality ones and a good size. Most of the ones i've seen around here are sooty or just too small. So i just keep looking, eventually i'll find some.
