Just a thought if you feed Prima, get it off ebay.
I paid about £10-£11 last time for 600grams (enough to fill a large tub twice).
Normally comes in a bag, so I re-seal what won't go in the tub and keep it in a cool dark place.
Works out a lot cheaper and I'm a great believer in saving a few pennies when I can :winkin

I have seen it on ebay but was alway dubious about it actually being Prima.

As Anita posted, you have to read carefully as there are some copies of the food out there.

Good to see you've added a bit more sand, with a very shallow bed plants have difficulty staying anchored.
30deg limits the plants one can grow - the heat can literary melt some species.
The trick is to keep trying and make a note of plants that have failed or melted that way you don't buy them again.
Your tank is looking good :winkin

Many thanks ... I was wanting them to stay in-place, so instead of putting in lead weights - I added more sand to keep them anchored...... none have came out so far.

Well, I spent Sunday afternoon having a plant trimming and re-arranged the wood a little, as my Male Pigeon Blood was chasing the big Male Blue Diamond (after his return to the main tank!) .......... I removed the PB for 45 mins. - whilst changing things around a bit and so far there is now a mutual stand-off, with the BD becoming more confident again. ....the Male Blue Diamond used to be the dominant one (2 months ago), making me having to remove him for a week and re-arrange the 'furniture' also back then......... I guess the Female Red Turq is the object of desire for both; Fish, eh!

Tested some settings on Camera afterwards....
