First up, my 25L nano tank.

I have a pair of Nothobranchius foerschi together with a small shoal of Paracheirodon simulans. Planting is Bacopa monnieri, java moss, Anubias baterii and Anubias nana.

Next, my 54L tank.

This has nine Boehlkea fredcochui and is planted with Amazon swords and Cryptocorene becketii. I'd previously tried the latter as a bedding plant in the 400L tank but the clowns trashed it /angry.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":angry:" border="0" alt="angry.gif" />

Awesome /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> Excellent picture.

Would you mind dreadfully if I cropped it and stole it for the Knowledge Base? /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Feel free to use it if you like /thumbs_up.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumbsup:" border="0" alt="thumbs_up.gif" /> Seems only fair, given that it was the fish I was researching when I found SeriouslyFish.

They are lovely set ups indeed. Presumably you're intending to breed the killi's Eyrie?

Not intending to breed them, but if I spot eggs then I may give it a try.

Not quite sure what happened to the picture quality here, because the tank looks nice and clear to the naked eye. But this is my 400L main tank which was meant to be a Sumatran biotope for my six clown loaches until I bought the Microrasbora rubescens. Also contains a female pearl gourami and fifteen harlequins (there are another nine in tghe q-tank). Planting is Hydrophilia corymbosa at the rear, Cryptocorene pontederiifirola frotn left and java fern in the corners (which I keep meaning to sort out /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" /> ).

Bought six Hara jerdoni at the weekend, which necessitated a bit of juggling since they need cooler water than I keep my tanks at. So they went in the nano, bumping the false neons and killi into the 54L.

Finally managed a half-decent photo of one this evening. It's about the size of my thumb nail.

Other purchase was eleven ember tetras which have also gone in the 54L. I know I should have quarantined them first /blush.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blush:" border="0" alt="blush.gif" /> Hope to get half a dozen Corydoras habrosus to finish this off as a "miniatures" tank - the Cochu blue tetras have been returned to the 240L community.

I love Haras. I kept a small group of H. jerdoni in that little planted tank I posted the other day. Very nice choices Eyrie!

Cheers Matt /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> I'm very taken with them, for all that they don't do anything! Which came in handy this evening as I got home to find one perched (posed?) on an Anubias leaf and it was still there when I got back with the camera.

BTW, call me Mark /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
