For the fruit and veg I have: 10x Silver Dollars (or Silver Dollar like species to be exact - striped etc) 1x Leopard Plec 4x Silver...

    Silver dollars

    Damn, would have been perfect for me. Exactly what I'm after for my 1450L tank. But Northampton is too far I'm afraid. Unless you're moving further North? :p

    The price of Silver Dollars...

    Hi, So I haven't been able to keep Silver Dollars for many years, due to keeping other fish. Now I'm looking to buy a big shoal of them, about 8 fish. However, they used to be £4 in nearly every LFS (this was about 5 or so years ago). Now, for much smaller fish, they're at least £8 (sometimes...

    Air Pump Recommendations For Use In Deep Tank...

    Thanks for that, I think that particular model might not be available in the UK from the quick look around I've had. It might be called something else though, so will have another look for sure.

    Air Pump Recommendations For Use In Deep Tank...

    I've tried the Rena 600 and the Eheim 400, but neither are strong enough for my 36" deep tank.   Once the air stone gets down to around 2ft deep, it slows to the odd bubble. Lift it up, and it of course works great, as it should.   Have tried shortening the tubing to the bare minimum and placing...

    Large Acrylic Tank Manufacturer In The Uk...?

    Looking for an acrylic tank builder in the UK to build a 108x27x30+ inch tank. Have found a few manufacturers, but the tank I want is either too big or too small! Neptune and Fista Filtration being two I've requested quotes from.   I currently have a very large tank made out of glass and needed...

    Wanted: Old Tank For A Sump (Wirral/merseyside/cheshire)

    Hi,   Does anybody have an old tank laying about unused, that I could buy for use as a sump?   Ideally, I'm looking for a 60" x 18" x 18". But can go up to 8ft in length. The longer the better to be honest.   Let me know if you have anything!   Thanks.

    Moving House.

    Best thing to do for the fish would be to get a large poly box or two from your local fish shop. Some give them for free, others charge around £2.50 each.   If the fish are non aggressive and small, and will be okay together for a period, simply fill the poly box with water and transport that...

    Does Anyone Know What Happened To; Www.aquariums-Manufacturing.co.uk?

    I was all set to order my huge tank from them. But after 18+ years they seem to have disappeared.   They are reasonably local to me and I'd been there to the shop, to speak about the build and check out some of the tanks. Everything seemed great. Was very happy.   Was told they have 4+ months of...

    Water Change Drain

    Thanks for the input.   Had a bit of a setback in that the place I was getting my tank from appears to have mysteriously and suddenly closed down after 18 years+.   Deposit was 50% which would have been a big amount given tank size. Very lucky I didn't hand anything over.   It's dissapointing as...

    Water Change Drain

    Thanks for the reply.   I tend to use wavemaker style units for movement, but I could change if it works.   So, what you are saying is have a powerhead style pump in the tank, with an intake tube going say 70% down (to run dry when the tank is around 30% full)?   This seems like a good option if...

    Water Change Drain

    Hi,   So I'm thinking of ways to make changing 50%+ of the water in my 1500L tank easier.   I want to connect my tank to the household drain under a nearby sink.   What is the best way to do this? I few shops have suggested drilling a hole in the side or bottom, connecting PVC piping with a ball...
