    Hi everyone,

    longtime no speak, hope you’re all doing well!!

    I picked up a pair of the red variety (more orange than red) today which were captive bred in Germany/Switzerland (at least I hope that they’re a pair and the female isn’t an endler). I’m very excited about potential fry, especially as the female is heavily preggers. My water stats are very similar to Kim m’s though my pH is slightly higher at 8.0. Ultimately I plan to add a few more pairs (if the current pair fair okay) and keep them in the pond over summer. Hence my next dilemma that there is no point in keeping yellows in the pond as well if the females will preferentially with the reds.

    I’ll keep you informed on how they get on,

    Bren

    Sorry Brendan they’re just not my cup of char… /wacko.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:wacko:” border=”0″ alt=”wacko.gif” /> Any chance of seeing some pics of your pond?

    So you’re partial to a golossolepis?, you may yet be saved form the darkness (and my bosemani has lost the murderous glint in his eyes)

    Haji, How are the fish getting on now (and how do you take such great pics??).

    I’m sure that you guys will have a great time in Singapore, it’s an amazing city. There’s even a chain of fish and chip restaurant (usually found in the shopping mall food courts) which sells deep fried mars bars (aortas are for wimps /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” /> ) They sell something called a chilli crab O, which is basically a chilli crab cornish pastie. I adore them to the extent that if you left me there for more than 2 weeks I wouldn’t be able to fit on the airplane back.

    Would you guys be planning to visit Malaysia? You would be so close to perfect beaches and great snorkelling it would be a shame not to.

    I also have a problem with Melanotaenia sp. rainbowfish but can’t put my finger on exactly why…

    Rainbowfish are the best fish in the world (well apart from sids, they’re awesome /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” />

    Platies!!! Most boring fish in the world! …

    Ah a woman after my own heart, a collegue has 6 in his lab tank and they really do nothing apart from eat.

    Gotta admit that I’ve fallen for my swordtail trio though. They were due to be rehomed this month from the pond but I now can’t part with them and have made space in the 240L. I just hope the praecox can munch all the fry or I’m heading for trouble

    A lot of shops are now selling Anentome helena ‘Assassin Snail’ and as the name implies they actively seek out and kill other snails and don’t seem to breed in the quantities of other snails

    I’ve got three of these in my tank, funnily enough they co-exist with a group of 6 sids. They’re not great snail eaters as they can only munch one each per night and most snails will reproduce at a faster rate than the helena can eat them. They’re great to watch though, the worlds slowest predator v prey chase although they can be surprisingly quick (well relatively, they’re snails after all /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” />

    Here’s a basic list. I’m off to Ayreshire shooting for a few days and will have limited net access, but will answer any questions as soon as I can. Most are available as single plants, bunches, potted, some on bogwood and of course bulbs.

    They are not treated with anti snail remedies, and thus should be quarantined (Like all plants purchased before been introduced into your main tanks to minimise the risk of snail infestastion. Not that many people ever do this of course! /tongue.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:p” border=”0″ alt=”tongue.gif” />

    So back on topic (leeds baiting aside) I can’t believe that Ashley has chosen to keep Wise (was there ever a more inappropriate name?) above Keegan. Has he seen the news durng the last 2 days? Does he have a clue what the fans want? Is he still intoxicated from his 10 second ‘non-alcoholic /sad.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:(” border=”0″ alt=”sad.gif” /> )

    Hey Folks

    In my opinion anybody who would walk away from a Leeds Utd job is not a good acquisition (think I spelt the last word right).

    Regards David

    you’re right they should do the job properly, I would sell all their good players (hang on it’s Leeds, what good players? /biggrin.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:D” border=”0″ alt=”biggrin.gif” />

    Big news for me (although not to anyone outwith Edinburgh) is that Hibs have just brought back Riordan, who at one time was a hot prospect until Celtic singed him to sit on their bench. Given the way our season has started, he can only be an improvement.

    Damn, I was hoping wednesday would take a chance on him (still think he’s a fantastic prospect) although we could probably only afford to pay him 25p a week
