Your tanks are stunning. I love your angel and tetra tanks but really do like them all, theres a great contrast between them all.
How did you get on with the 6ft tank?

Thank you

The 6ft is still plodding along, Beastie the eel is not very active now due to the cold weather, I notice 1 feeder goldie gone every day so she is still eating, once the weather warms up again so will her appetite I bet lol

The axi eggs (pictured above) are starting to hatch now. We will soon be doing the first cull/clean up of the batch.

We are getting there with setting up the area outside for the axi breeding and raising. I have picked up a 5ft 3 tiered stand and 2x 4ft tanks. 1 of the 4fts is home to the female adult axis and the other will be home to the males once it has been resealed. There is also a 3ft tank out there that will be home to larger juvie axis, although it is housing the males at the moment until their tank is ready.

The 1st batch of juvies have now been moved into individual cups, these are sitting on the 5ft stand at the moment. Once the 6ft tank is moved, another stand will be going in to hold the individual containers.

Some pics of the eggs (in above post) so you can see what stage they are at :)

An update:

Sorry I haven't added anything new for a while. My hubby and I have recently bought our own home. So I have been busy trying to condense down the tanks to keep just what I need running. I have also added another 2 racks to the tank totals lol (around 28 tanks)....I have an undercover area full of tanks waiting to be moved lol, also more sitting in the pool (table) room.

I managed to get the guys that built most of my tanks to, when moving date is here, bring their truck and gear to move the majority of tanks over for me (thankfully!!!) Will be setting some of these up at the new house and bringing fish and filters over and putting on the holding tanks while, I empty and then move the remaining tanks from the old house.

I am also in the process of getting quotes to have a 6mx6m shed (fishroom) built at the new house. All the tanks will eventually be put into here, but first up they will need to go into the undercover area and the entertainment shed. The new shed will be fully insulated and lined, with a drain in the floor. Once the shed is built I will be looking at getting a few 4x4x2ft tanks built

I am also going to merge my planted tanks into the 6x2x2 tank...

I cant wait honestly, very excited to finally have my own fish tank shed

Just so I added a few latest pics
