Here's a little video of my new 50L cory tank! I managed to get all of my fish in frame at once! haha

10x Corydoras trilineatus (aka "julii"), and a BNC

Plants are some compact blehiri swords and some chain swords, in fine quartz sand

Nice set up rodger and sound track provided by the bird :) Thinking of getting some more corys for my tank.

I did slightly break biotope the other day and put in some java moss lol, but wanted some more plant matter, and something that would stay around the top...

And I also set up a betta barracks recently (there's a thread in DIY forum), and it has 2 guys in it now, and they look pretty happy with the new accommodation, both making nests!

Our first betta, "Alpha" or Al:

(btw, is the bulge near his peduncle normal?)

showing off at the camera lol:

I think the bulge might be his swim bladder. It does look larger than normal. If it's an infection I'd expect to see other signs eg not eating or swimming funny.

Interesting about the swim bladder... but he seems fine otherwise.

Thanks Steph!

I've put 4 smaller IAL in the tank, but the PH doesn't seem to be going down noticeably... As far as I can tell from my API test (hard to tell the subtle colour differences sometimes lol), it just sits at ~7.2, before and after the IAL. I'd like to get it down to 6.5-6.8 or so before I get a pair of apistos... Might try some DIY CO2, tho last time I tried that nothing seemed to happen (like, no bubbles)

Search you tube for a good "how to make your own CO2 canister" video. Im sure there was one posted on this site but I have no idea where.
