  1. How are they going for you Karl? Still breeding flat out? Italian Stallion- You have a definite pair of which the larger one is female. Cheers, Nick.
  2. Great looking tank you've set up there SchmucK. Well done mate! Nick.
  3. my guess is vaseline like Mianos said. All over my aqua one o ring too and never had a problem.
  4. Just wow! I want some. I know they grow big but how big is big? Nick.

  6. The one I have found is exactly like mianos'
  7. As both Ash and Josh said, not all black gravel buffers as I have found. Keep testing like i did with vinegar and you'll find one that doesn't. HTH Nick.

I won't be taking advice from that LFS anymore, you know who you are! Any other recommendations on substrate? Pebbles maybe? Cheers and thanks guys for all your input! Nick.
  11. It must be, he's in immaculate condition. Well done.
  12. Great pics once again Oliver, thanks for sharing them with us!
  13. From the tap it's at 7.6
  14. He looks great. Good luck Mat. Cheers, Nick.
