    haha loving the Clown Loach, when I kept fresh water fish, we used to feed ours cucumber on a fork, they went so mad for it they would make like a clicking noise, awesome little fish, i wish there was something similar on the salt side. Is that a Niger Trigger in the predator tank? Good pics, looks like fun.

    Get yourself ABS plastic sheet from Maizey Plastics to put behind the tank/. You get them in 0.9mm and 1.5mm. The thicker one will stand up by itself and will be easier to put in place.
    '
    Either black or blue. I prefer black. Blue gives better pictures of fish, against a CLEAN blue background. But you need to clean the back panel then. Black and you do not need to clean the back panel, I prefer that plus its more grazing area for snails.

    Thank you guys!
    Forgot to mention there is a zebra eel in the predator tank as well .
    and I have a Boyu tl 550 (marine ready) which has a fresh water Moray eel a Horse face and a baby tyre track eel, this tank has been used as a quaranteen tank for the tropical fish.

    And there is a small Fresh water Electric blue Lobster Tank in my daughters room.

    Want to maybe Turn the Tl 550 into a Sea horse tank, anyone have any experience with sea horses?

    Must say the predator tank is a mission regarding nitrates due to the food and eating habits of the predators!
