    Sorry to hear about all the background, but glad to see you’re coming along!

    Slow and steady wins the race, and the suspense on this is pretty great too

    Good luck! The hanging gardens idea will look awesome with that set up! Can make it a pretty big feature wall from the looks of things too!

    I have send the "vertical gardens" back to the seller. Appeared not very usable inside.
    Search goes on.

    Oh bummer. Sounded like a promising setup... did it not have a catchment system below?

    Funny thing this tank has been filled for years. Moved it yesterday and only saw it now. Its little sister-tank seems to be ok.

    Hoping to fill it soon.

    Ag what a shame I’m so sorry about the corys... will be much better to have them under your watchful eye.
    Great that you have spare tanks!
    Will you move the fish with their cycled filters?

    Yeahhh I will. Only got the napoensis and pandas with me now (4 of each arghhh).
    I will set up 4 tanks. Putting these guys together in a 50 litre tank.There will be two bigger tanks in which the venezuelanus and paleatus albino will stay. When I move them I'll take the canisterfilters with me.
    One smaller tank I'll try to set op as a hillstream

    Sounds great. Looking forward!

    Will you try breed the napoensis and pandas or eventually buy in more?

    Sho your losses must’ve been crushing as not too long ago you kept 10 cory species? Life can sometimes suck :(
