    Never worked it out for the tank alone, hasn't made much difference, used to have 13 tanks before so now only have 4.

    Coco nearing the end of her pregnancy, due date is the 21 Oct, such an amazing site to see the baby movement in her.

    Unfortunately Milo was been a rascal has gone on holiday to a friend's tank but will be back soon. I'm starting renovations at home next week and getting a dedicated fiah room up and running with the plan for 2x 2m tanks. Exciting times ahead.

    After a long stressful wait. Coco finally has her babies here. They all look like replicas of their Dad. Now to get them eating.

    This makes MariaS a Stingray "great grandmother"

    Thanks Maria. The last few years have been great with the Rays, Baby loves the big fish so they definitely going to be around for a long tine. I really appreciate all the time and advice offered from you and Cesar. It is much appreciated. Finally Coco can leave my wavemaker alone. The stress once we passed 3 months really got me worried. I'm sure I have a few gray hairs now. But we documented birth and 5 days before 4 months so I'm sure her Black Diamond genes had a big part in this pregnancy. Just happy all went well and Mum is doing great. Back to her normal busy self.

    That will be completed in the next day or two. Had a problem with the roof which they had to dismantle and re angle which caused quite a delay but we reaching the end. Still deciding on getting 2nd hand tanks or building new. Need 2 tanks atleast 2m+
