The Peruvian angels are spawning again and my zebra pleco makes a guest appearance lol





Hope you's enjoy sorry about the cheesy music.

Hahaha you must be into the jazz robert are you.


Yeah I can't get over how social the zebra is he has a cave in the middle of the tank under the root but doesn't be in it at all he does be out and about all day when the lights are on and actively feeds when I'm feeding.

When I first got him I would sit for hours making sure he was eating lol now I just enjoy him instead of stressing over him.

Thanks lads

To be honest I'm chuffed with how it is looking I didn't think I had the capacity to have a planted tank hahahahaha.

Just doing weekly water changes and was doseing ferts haven't really had a good routine with the dosing but still have great growth they are all low maintenance plants but to grow something other then duckweed is an achievement for me hahahah

Its all looking good.
One question, your wood looks like it hanging from something, as it's hardly touching the floor.
what have you tied it to?!
Love the pleco.

It's hanging from the cross frame at the top of the tank I had wanted it in the substrate but it floated when I filled the tank so I improvised and secured it from the top of the tank.

Just another quick update changed the scape a small bit and upgraded my external filter and moved the angels to a breeding tank and added a small shoal of pencil tetras and a whiptail catfish.





Hope you's enjoy all input welcome on if I should add more plants or add a co2 system or any changes I could make to the tank.
