    Just on the making of it etc, that would be really superb. I swear I’ve seen it before though. That’ll be my latent psychic powers again /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” />

    You’ll be wanting a big-ish group mate so I reckon Brian or someone might be able to order in for you?

    Yeah deffo want a large group Matt. Will have a word with a few LFS see if I get any luck.

    What kind of turnover do I want in this tank btw? Looking at Aquaclear powerheads, they’re incredibly cheap now. I could do 3000LPH for £50

    I had the Teleocichla tank turning over 1500l ph so getting towards 15 x tank volume. Looking at the shape of them mate I’d say you’re right in that the fish will tend to stay out of the main flow but they should feed in the water column. Judging by their mouth shape/position I wonder if they feed on quite a bit of algae in the wild?

    In my rivertank I have two Re-sun powerheads that give me 5000 lph turnover, there is also a smaller power filter in there running a small spray bar as well.

    When My mate had them he did note that they would often be seen grazing on the algae on the rocks, I asked if they were actually eating the algae or grazing it for anything edible like micro organisms, snails or baby shrimp etc and he wasn’t 100% sure.

    why dont you use a seio pump – they are only about £20 and will turn over 2400 litres per hour (for the m620 and go up from there) – also its not in a jet stream, other positive is they only run at about 7 watts whereas a large powerhead runs at about 20 + watt each

    Oh, and what about Bedotia geayi as “dithers” (what IS the right word for that?

    Bedotia would be too large as adults I reckon mate, I’ve seen them at close to 6″ in a couple of public aquariums. I think Pseudomugil could work though.
