New pics and some bad news :(

King boffer died after a long battle with DGD.

Poor boff.

And in better news, just a couple of new pics of my 200l

As you can see, quite hot in there today, but there doesn't seem to be a lot we can do. I don't know why it holds the temperature so well, the other tanks aren't anywhere near 28 degrees. Maybe it's just because it's the biggest tank? Or maybe the external filter has something to do with it? I don't know. I've tried cooling it but the fish seem to be alright, no deaths, no illness, no flashing for a very long time. Hurrah!

The 125 is still going OK although I decided that plants, minimal lighting and loaches was a bad mix so have some vallis and java fern and a few odds and ends but that's it, moved the rest to the 200 where I am dosing flourish and everything seems to be...well... flourishing!

Over the last month we have lost another rummynose to a mystery illness which turned its body white from the inside over several months, thought it might be Neon Tetra Disease but it hasn't spread at all - Phew. All other inhabitants fine. Thinking of getting a plec for this one as the algae is everywhere and the loaches snack on any snails they come across. Maybe I will go with a slightly rarer L number this time but I'm not 100% sure yet.
