    I thought you were very diligent in maintaining your yeast supply. If one could keep up like you have DIY CO2 is doable. Although, I would say you are an exception rather than the rule. I couldn't keep up with it!

    Well worth the wait Roy, looking very neat and tidy. Something else I'll need to learn - when trimming how do you collect the excess?

    Hi Glomeridae, Thank you :) Yes its an Endler guppy . He came in the bag when i brought the shrimp. I never even see him till i put the shrimp in the tank after about 30 min:eek: I wondered what it was swimming about:) It was only when he got older and started to colour up i found out what he was:D He has some cool colours on him when he shimmers in the light :rolleyes:
