ok, today i bought a female guppy. ( i think she's pregnant, can you tell by the pics)
there wasnt much choice but as you said i bought the biggest and most healthy looking. I also bought some plants as you can see in the pictures.... Are these good plants for the babies to hide in? Also are there too many plants in the tank now.

i acclimatised the fish for 40mins then let her in but she is breathing really fast and im kinda scared she may dies because the x-ray tetra i just moved back into the main tank was breathing fast for the last 3 days but is now fine in the main tank. I though it might be the rocks i had in there that may contain something poisenous but i changed them over and he was still.

anyway sorry if that makes no sense as im going out and i had to write this really quick.

whats your thoughs?

Just put a male in and she'll probably be pregnant by the end of the week. With all the plants though... She might hide from him....

Because we all know how pushy guys can be.

Hi again guys i think a big update is needed
alot has changed

Fish
The platy died as did 3 of the tetras, the 2 remaining tetras are in my main tank.
The only fish in there at the moment is a Giant Danio i rescued of my mate who was taking down his tank

snails
in the last week i have had a sudden urge for snails so i bought
2 golden appe snails
1 purple stripe apple snail
2 MTS snails

future plans
well i have gotten really into snails and in the new year the tank is having a massive overhaul i will be replacing the gravel with blank gravel, putting live plants in and moss. All this will make the tank become purely a snail and best of all a shrimp tank so watch this space

heres some pics, none of the snails as the one time you want a pic is when they are in the hard spots to photograph

Any positives and negatives welcome


big boy

PHOTOBOMB!!!!!
