    Awesome looking Betta 
    I use to love only black crowns but over the years eased into liking other styles of betta
    I would love to buy the betta in picture 1 if it was a giant lol

  2. RocRus01 added a post in a topic: Cherry & Crystal Red Shrimp together?   

    I have a 2ft tank with about 15 cherry, 30 crystal and 5 ghost shrimp
    They all live fine with my guppies and my endlers...... the guppies keep popping babies out and its like every few times I actually sit there and watch my tank there's more and more babies from the guppies, endlers and shrimp....

    But that's just me... there's heaps of plants and java moss and holes for the shrimp to hide...

    When I throw in some pleco algae bits the shrimps and my pleco eat together... sometimes it looks like the have a little battle where the shrimp try to drag the food

    But all in all that's just my set up i guess everyone's is different

    I haven't done it mate but it should be the same way as I showed you how to do the moss rocks....
    Need something flat and then spread the moss out and lay a mesh over it...... and then wait...and wait and wait some more

    I hear there sometimes called River dogs...
    Sometimes also people train them to do stuff like pull on a string that rings a bell when there hungry.... but that soon gets annoying cos there always wanting food

    I love my wife but even I sometimes have to slow my roll to say, but the excuse now is that I go into so many fazes and she cant keep up lol
    From my lowrider bikes to my tattooing to my fish and then back to this and then back to that
    The hardest was when I went back home to Naples..... I got so obsessed with the hooligans that she went back to London to stay with her family

    I just tell her that Im a jack of many trades but master of none cos there's so many things I want and want to learn.

    I like this place, you guys always have answers and its so easy to find stuff on I like interacting with people...
    I use to hate it and be very "on my own" but hey

    Watch out next competition guys....

    Hi Gang,

    I have finally got my TV tank half way....Now I just need to design, fill it and select fish

    This is the tank that has been custom made, its 44cm in length, 33cm in hight and 11.5cm in width

    Next I gutted the TV set and ran wires for my LED lights
    Two LEDs run on the inside of the telly set and sit near the glass on each side of the tank, Also I can switch the lights on from the power button of the TV and dim or brighten them with the volume control buttons. It has 2 'L' clamps that hold the tank in place to stop it from rocking or shaking
    The tank sits on a lite bit of wood and slimline foam as well

    This is a pic of the painted LED's and filter I plan to use

    This is it completed with the back and front of the TV screwed back together to look like a normal TV

    And this is it with the lights on

    Also I'm in the middle of using the old remote control as a fish food feeder

    Now once I put my heater in and fill in with gravel and silicon my golden root in and do a few other decorations Ill need to select fish to put in
    So any suggestions guys?
    I'm thinking a pair of rams, or a pair of flame gourami, or maybe just neons??... I'm open for suggestions

    P.S there's a flap cut out at the top so I can get my hand in

    Stay tuned for my next project....

    Hi Guys,

    lol Ness, I brought two fish of Adam but one died so the little guy you see poking his head out of the hair grass is the only fish I have gotten from breeders on here
    The Black betta with blue in his tail is one of the 4 I got of Jha..... his super aggressive and XL for a crown tail

    I have heaps of other fish in there but they don't stay still enough to take snaps off lol
    The other guys are fish I have picked form LFS's...I do the whole stand there for ages watch, move a jar or two and watch again while my wife looks at me strangely or just says shes going to sit in the car...

    Yan, Thanks for explaining, I would of just taken another pick and said that should explain it all....

    Top row is reserved for my Giants....I have two "SUUUUUUPPPER GIANTS" and one apparently average sized giant lol...
    Im not fussed on super or standard giant...there all big to me.......
