Marcos, really cool. If you were closer, I would give you all my loaches.

Thanks chefkeith!

All fishes transfered. 31 Clown loaches, out of 30 are there. Yes... there was 31 Clown loaches in former tank. I was sure there were only 30.

After emptying 450 liter tank I decided to take a picture of it empty:

It was about 3 in the morning. When camera Flash started blinking guess who woke up?

All these shots were taken without tank lights on.
