    renewed tanks.

    My tanks of late have been looking a little shabby , so after spending an obscene about of money I dont have on fake plants. I have started replacing old and worn out stuff. The first tank I have done today I have been worried about the fish. They have been pretty lathargic (although most are ancient) and spending more time just hiding. However today after a re-vamp of the tank and new plants they are swimming about and looking more cheerful again

    Will do pics as soon as camera is charged.

    They are less hassle than the thayeri, both are getting quite friendly towards me now, coming upto the glass and wiggling at me. It has taken ages for them to settle. The goldline still shoot off round the tank like loonies if you go near to quickly though.
