Ian this is my second atempt at keeping a giant gurami, the first one died when it got trapped with rock. The 1 I have now is a young male and is growing fast, he is about7inchs now and I cant wait for him to reach over 2ft, he is my wife's fav fish. Ive a male and female ornate bircher but dont have the right set up to try and breed them, they are so gracfull and peaceful fish.

im probably the only one in the world that cannot put a video on utube. Ill take a shorter vid later and see if it loads. I saved the video in a format suitable for email mp4, is that wrong?.

Had the same problem with my giraffe too although I didn't mind so much... the way I looked at it was sure what river bed is flat :laugh:
There's just something about low light tanks and blackwater tanks that tick my boxes B)

Derek the tank has a 5ft sump with sponge thats all, im running the tank on organic aqua so only need to do 25% water change once a month.

Davey I regard the giraffe cat's digging up the gravel as a real bonus to keep the gravel fresh and constantly stirred up.
