    @Logan, @Sjoerd when I woke this morning I found that my fish showed better in the living room in the dark, so I did one for 4mins sorry about my shadow in the back ground.

    I know very little about aquariums Gail but i do know some fish are not compatible with each other they will fight just be careful what you put together.

    Mine are all ok to be together...where I had the Albion suckers from said when they get bigger as they go territorial they'll take them back and gives me young again which is good...i'm not overloading mart because of algae growth and I've got more blue lights on it than red so it's more dimmed.

    Well I went and brought new filtrations today for my filter when it needs changing £6-99 for 3 more expensive than my others :shrug:….took a water sample this morning, then changed water by removing 3 buckets and re-adding them with AquaSafe and API stresscoat and zyme.

    The cycle must be running nicely with the fish now added as my readings was this.

    pH 7.6
    Ammonia 0.25ppm
    Nitrite 0.50ppm
    Nitrate 5.0ppm

    You should have a minimum of 6 tetras Gail, as it’s a scholing fish.
