  1. Hi guys…I hope you are all well. I’ve not posted for a while due to my new found passion of guitar lessons taking up most of my time and finances, along with my normal and loved routine tank maintenance. It’s been a few weeks now, but back in February I sadly lost one of the “Odd Couple”….the fantail Shubunkin (See image below). He has now been added to the fishy graveyard plot, part of our rear garden flower-bed, along with “The Pink Lady” and “Gentle Wen” to name a few. I debated what to do, should I get a new mate for “Nelson” the one eyed fantail, or just abandon the cold-water aspect of the tank, and set up a new tropical community? I decided to place Nelson in with the other three established guys (The Codfather, Marty, and Rocky) in the kitchen tank, but leave “Mick Jagger” the Chinese sucker in the second tank until I made a decision regarding new stock. I introduced all these fish in my article….http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/106352-my-fishy-family/ I decided to re-incarnate my passion of many years ago for the tropical varieties, less work in the long run. Since then I have bought new heaters and re-stocked the tank with some new inhabitants, namely… 12 Neon Tetra’s. 6 Harlequins. 2 Dwarf Red Gourami’s. 2 Dwarf Powder Blue Gourami’s. 6 Platy’s. 3 Panda Corydora’s. 3 Five Stripped Barb’s. I know what a lot of you will say, but I kept the Chinese sucker (Mick Jagger) in with them also……I don’t know if it is the higher temperature (I keep it a constant 80 degrees (80 °F = 26,7 °C)), or the fact that none of the new family are considered a threat, but I never see him during the day. He shuts himself away in his ornamental ship, coming out only at night. In the two months since I started the new community, I have not lost a single fish (Touching wood), and without wishing to tempt fate, all seems well at the moment. Here is the new tank…. In the several weeks since the set-up I have also had some new arrivals…..Platy fry, about 6 of them. I managed to capture one on film…. Here is Nelson in with the “Wild Bunch”… I’ll keep everyone posted on the progress, and status of the new community soon…..
