Its 190 litres(jewel trigon 190)
it is a very nice tank prob one of my faves on the market!
as wise man say.... "a thousand mile journey starts with one step"
It is a fantastic hobby....When all else around goes mad you can always rely on your aquarium to take your mind off it!! :beer:

Just about to add something else to the tank! :) i have half a completely hollowed out coconut. i have washed it and just about to boil it.
anyone got any ideas how i could put it in the tank?

i could make some sort of hut for the little ones or i could make it into two little shelter type things

Haha, i just don't have the money for a bigger one at the moment.
Also what do you think about getting one more fish in my tank?
I'm thinking a nice little black moor, or would even a few tetras be fine?
