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.
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.

Flooding in the Calder Valley has once again caused havoc and disruption. Heavy rain over the Christmas weekend, falling onto the already saturated hills and moors, quickly ran down into the river valley, overflowing into the Rochdale Canal and the Calder & Hebble Navigation.
On Boxing Day the streets in the middle of Hebden Bridge were waist-deep in water. Several boats on the Rochdale Canal were swept from their moorings, with one left high and dry across the canal.
As the water surged downstream it brought havoc to the Calder & Hebble Navigation between Elland and Brighouse. A number of boats were swept up onto the bank while four others were totally submerged. The towpath and part of the arch of Crowther Bridge, near Cromwell Lock, were washed away.
