250 litre Boyu Cabinet Aquarium

It's been a good while since I have updated content here on digexpert so here we go. A fresh start and hopefully the beginning of a lot more to come!

Recently in my life I have been very busy and in and out of hospital and the doctors a lot. 

I have taken up a few hobbies including model horse customisation, playing and producing minecraft videos and of course  setting up and managing my new ftropical fish tank. 

The new fish tank that I own is a 250 litre Boyu cabinet aquarium with hood / hob filtration which uses a trickle filtration setup. 

I have managed to find a massive ww2 aircraft carrier to sit nicely in the tank which is 70 cm log and managed to get hold of many plants to fill out the tank. 

I have not bought any new fish as I have managed to home grow a couple of black and Dalmatian mollies, about 40 guppies and many hundred orange swordtails (I passed the swordtails onto a local pet shop) 

I recently had a bout of Velvet disease in the tank which killed off all 4 of my rare purebred endlers livebearer guppies but hopefully the males have passed on their genes to a couple if female 3 month old homebred guppies. So maybe all is not lost and some pretty hybrids may be on the way as they are certainly pregnant. 

More news to come!
