Keep your words sweet. You never know when you may have to eat them.
Good looking ginrin on those. I especially like the ones with plenty of sumi, which can shift and change a lot. Nice work NS.
Cheers Thanks for the comments guys, our water here is like concrete it is that hard all the chalk cliffs in southern England! So the sumi develops very quickly. But it doesn't seem to come and go or move about it just seems to come out, whether that is the hard water or not or my bad water keeping skills is another matter!!! The video is better than the photo!

The following results are off the water companies website so please don't ask me to explain them!!!
294 mg/l CaCO3,ppm CACO3, 21 English °Clarkes, 16 German °dH, 29 French °TF 118mg/l Calcium, 2.9 mmol/l Alk Earths
The 12 drops corresponds to 12 German degrees KH which is over 200 ppm, and your water company's measurements are even higher, nearly 300. So the Carbonate in your water source is at least 3 or 4 times what we have here. Besides helping with sumi, it may also help with their body conformation, due to all the additional exercise of swimming through that.
