rescued from it's recent fate as breeding tank for algae and congenitally deformed guppies, the biorb has had a good clean and been restocked with some fresh plants and a selection of two each silver, black lyetail, leopard and dalmatian mollies.

this picture, like almost every picture I take of fish, really doesn't show them to their best.

does it have enough oxygen?

should do. that tank has supported bigger populations in the past. the airstone could have done with replacing, tbh, but by the time I found that out, it was a bit late. Next time.

of all the pets I have had and cared for, fish worry me the most, I was never very sure they were happy, not like dogs/tails , cats/purring etc....

spotlessly so. I stripped it right down and cleaned everything. I'd forgotten how ace this tank looks when it's clean and tidy. Eight new livebearing fish to keep the remaining, ill-looking, guppy company too.

Clare just showed up and offered us some more mollies she has spare. I think they'll have to go in Mart's tank.

I think we should mount a rescue mission on Al's fishtank, those poor bastards are going to die of neglect while he's poncing around with his fancy new house.

Do it. Fish have far longer memories & far more capacity to suffer than most people imagine. I've turned up at people's houses & cleaned their tanks before now. There's always a way to make them think it was their idea... ;)

hmmm, i dont like biorbs. i used to really want 1 until i found out at my animal management college that fish bowls are bad for fish because all they can do is swim round and round in a circle. they arent free to do anything else as there isnt much space. biorbs are just like fish bowls..
a rectangle shaped fish tank is better. longer than is wide so they can swim more :)
