  1. Hey Bettarazzi, thanks for the welcome No way will I get as big as I was last time but im glad to see how far betta have come from when I left 2 years ago So much to chose from lol.... Roc
  2. 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 Roc
  3. Hi guys, I left the forum a while back and now looking to re-join Always loved Betta, specially GIANTS! I have been convinced by a guy who breeds Plecos at work to get a small nano tank for my desk (currently bidding on one on eBay) lol Hope to post pics soon if it all works out. Cheers Roc
  4. 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
  5. And the shrimps keep on coming....

  6. Working OT on saturdays, monies good but time slips away so fast...and all for what.....shhhesh kebabs

  7. My Dog wont start the fight but she will finish it......

    1. Sarah


      Haha sounds like me. :P

      Never be the one to start the fight!

    2. mumofthehoarde


      Dont ever start the fight but there is nothing wrong with being the last one standing.

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Oscars are Awesome.... and very intelligent Love Albino Oscars....

  12. 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 here....plus I like interacting with people... I use to hate it and be very "on my own" but hey Watch out next competition guys.... Roc
  13. MT Syndrome....Wicked for the tank or wicked that my wife is going to kill me? lol Ness..... I had so many ideas for that comp but I dont have the guts to go up against the people in here... my ideas are very LAME! sometimes
  14. Soon guys, also a guy at work and I are talking about turning a vending machine into a 3 x rack.... But will see.... My wife is so going to kill me.... lol
  15. 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.... A GUM BALL MACHINE FISH TANK -Roc
