    Topping Up Substrate And Adding More Live Rock

    Going to top up my crushed coral substrate. I was going to do this slowly, adding a bit at a time with week intervals, maybe like two mugs worth at a time. I've only got a 46ltr fluval edge so not a huge tank. And was worried about putting loads in and something going wrong lol. Does this sound...

    Copepod Type Bugs In New Fresh Water Set Up.

    Thanks for that reply. I thought they were carried over from the Marne set up so it was confusing me they were surviving. Just googled that fish. Nice looking. Looks like a cichlid?? Too large for a 46ltr fluval edge?

    Copepod Type Bugs In New Fresh Water Set Up.

    I started a marine tank and due to unforeseen circumstances had to opt out of it just at the point it was ready for fish and revert back to tropical fresh water. The marine tank went well with clean up crew and lots of copepod small bug things all over the live rock. Any way. I sold the live...

    3kg Live Rock And Cuc. Marham. Norfolk.

    Been set up about a month and a bit. About 3 kg of live rock that has been flourishing. Full of life. Paid £12 a kilo from swallow aquatics. Also have two Mexican hermit crabs and a pink turbo snail. I'd like to see if any ones interested in these for around the £20 mark. Paid more than this for...

    My Turbo Snail Isn't Very Turbo

    I didn't really watch him at the store. The guy was talking me through what I could have and I decided two hermits and a snail would do for now. I wasn't prepared to experiment with my first go at marine and my first inhabitants to be the £20 boxer shrimp he was offering. So I picked two lively...

    My Turbo Snail Isn't Very Turbo

    It's the stopping for ever bit I'm worried about. He has been there for a few hours now. :-( hopefully he is just "jet lagged" or something haha. He got across my crushed coral quite quickly and happily. Maybe he has just found a really tasty bit of glass.

    My Turbo Snail Isn't Very Turbo

    So I have had the tank running and cycling for about 4 weeks and went to swallow aquatics and got my water tested by them and some advice as I'm desperate for two clowns but I'm trying to be patient. They said its not ready yet but I could get a cuc. At least I have some thing in my tank to...

    Newbie With A Few Quick Q's

    I will have to get onto swallow aquatics and ask them where their rock is from. I know they urchins. Could it be the spines have been in the rock and been pushed out? The tank is cycling so when it gets a water change soon I will siphon some of them out and try get some good close up pics...

    Newbie With A Few Quick Q's

    I got it from swallow aquatics in east harling, Norfolk. I've only heard good things about them and every time I visit I'm still blown away. They have three tonne of live rock in a pool at any time the guy told me. Really hope can get to the bottom of this. Lol

    image by B.Caizley, on Flickr These little tube looking things keep turning up too. There are thinner ones round the back of the rock on the sand too. Any ideas on these?
