One of my hobbies is keeping tropical fish. Last year I invested in a large 600 litre tank. My intention was to build a heavily planted aquarium and add several fish of various colours and types so that it was a constant picture of action, an attractive feature in our houseI have never looked back. The fish are so therapeutic to watch and when a fish is pregnant I take an even closer interest to watch for any new arrivals.

They do need lots of time though. Water changes, tank cleaning, watching for poorly fish etc. Saying that, it's definitely worthwhile.

Taking shape

I have added bogwood, plants (plastic and real), ornaments and air stones.

My fish are Bristlenose Plecs, Clown Loach, Swordtails, Honey Gourami's, Lemon Tetra's, Neon Tetra's, Scissortails and Endlers.
