Am I reading this right.. that you have about 300 baby fish?  That's amazing! No wonder you are needing to do large water changes!

Thanks for sharing that Andy. It always great to hear about success like this.

Pity about the pics but I know how hard it is photographing fish  ;)

Are the photos too big? There is a size limit per photo, and a total size limit per post. If the photos are over 3000 KB, just resize them. If the photos are smaller than that but they total over 6000 KB, just split them into several posts.


My problem is getting the fish to keep still  ;D

@Andy The Minion   if you right click on a photo (assuming on PC) and select "open with", then select "Paint"...  You'll find a really easy to use re-size tool for photos...  :)

I usually crop my photos and that reduces them enough to be able to post.

I will have another look at the pictures at the weekend. They were taken on a 'generic fruit-based device' (let's see who gets that reference) and the interface is just too slick to show anything as useful as a file size or allow you to resize them, though no doubt there is yet another app that will do it. I'll transfer them to the pc, my guess is they just exceed the 3M limit.

I too have a “generic fruit” based device. There is a way of resizing photo’s but it isn’t obvious. It appear that if you ‘share’ the photo and then ‘mail’ it to yourself there’s an ‘images’ option which allows you to change the size.
That is if I’m correct in my assumption that your ‘generic fruit’ device is the same as mine !!!.

I was becoming concerned about my male honey gourami a few weeks ago. He was hiding in the top corner behind the heater with disintegrating tail fin and the back end of his dorsal fin becoming ragged. His colour was very washed out, and the female was chasing him every time he poked his nose out.
A few days ago, I noticed he was beginning to colour up and coming out more, so I've been watching him this afternoon. The female still chases him, but not as aggressively as before, and his fins are starting to regrow. Hopefully he is on the mend  :)

Fingers crossed he makes a full recovery, and that she'll calm down a bit too...  :)

Hope he's improving and being left in relative peace by the female, @Sue.

Snail #8 found on Wed; snail #9-12 found in today's water change, all attached to the back of the filter along with several patches of jelly-like substance and what I think were semi-hatched snails plus lots of black pieces (snail poo, I assume) on the filter floss. All wiped off as best as possible and snail #9-12 awaiting rehoming to pastures waters new. Hoping no more hitch-hikers lurking around!

We have just got back from a trip away - the first time I've left my fish in 5 years. I know I always say that fish will be OK for a week or more, but I was very relieved to find them all fit and well.

My brother-in-law got married - again - yesterday in Cwmbran and my husband was best man. A very enjoyable day  :)

I'm very glad that all's ok, Sue - I was actually getting concerned due to your (and others') uncharacteristic lack of apparition on the forum. Glad that the fish were well too and that your time in Wales was good.

My snail celebrated his first birthday yesterday (he's been doing this by spending all day, all week sleeping - but seems to move around during the night) and my harlies celebrate their third birthday tomorrow (brine shrimp banquet planned for them).  :)

Both male and female are behaving as though there was never anything wrong with the male. Though I must admit I can't actually find the male at the moment. The hornwort is taking over again and I can't see any fish lurking in the top 3 inches of the tank  ;D
