The phone camera can't keep up with the movement but it really seems to have caught the colours of the rainbow in this one. They always look good but I've not been able to catch the colours in a photo before.

I love the colours on rainbow fish and know exactly what you mean about catching them to get a decent picture.

Just been to the fish shop to pick up a couple of Ottos to see if they can tidy up the little bits of blackbeard algae I have and saw these fellows:

I've moved the flowerpot to a more open space and her belly is getting fat again!

I have a bucket that the flowerpot fits into if she lays eggs on it. Then I'll cover it up with something and see what happens.

You will need an airstone blowing bubbles gently over the top of the eggs to stop them going mouldy and rotten and a heater.
