    Tiger Barbs In A Biorb 60?

    Hmm... This biorb is becoming more annoying than I anticipated. Maybe a guppie tank it is.

    Tiger Barbs In A Biorb 60?

    Thanks for the replies guys, I'm hoping the powerhead I've put in, just breaking up the surface and the powerhead pulling water through the bubble pipe are going to help. Are there any smaller tetra or barbs you could recommend for this tank? Or just any other kind of fish apart from guppies?

    Tiger Barbs In A Biorb 60?

    Feel free to slate it, but it just becomes a witch hunt/ heated debate and then none of the questions asked, get answered etc etc, and we end up nowhere. And I'm hoping my attempts to increase surface agitation and water movement are going to boost the oxygen exchange. I mean, I wonder how I'd...

    Tiger Barbs In A Biorb 60?

    I'm back! After a while with no fish I've had a craving to have some back in my bedroom, so I've dug out my biorb 60, and set it up with just gravel and a powerhead to create some extra flow. I'm also going to add a powerhead onto the bubble tube to help with filtration because the bubble method...

    Scummy Film On Water Surface

    Thanks for the replies. Ever the procrastinator, I just added a power head and have done nothing else. It's been a few days and randomly today over the space of a few hours the water has cleared 10 fold, so I am just going to see how it is tomorrow and then go from there. Thanks again

    Scummy Film On Water Surface

    Hey, its been forever since I was on here, I recently restarted one of my tanks up a few days ago. Stripped it down, washed everything and set it all back up. I painted the back and filled it up with water, had everything running and it was cool, water nice and clear as expected. Then added...

    Cloudy Biorb

    Its been a good year since I came on here but I was a regular in the marine section. Anyways, I just set up a biorb 60 and treated it with some "filter start" I had, and some safe water or something by aquasafe. Anyways water was clear last night and today is murky. As far as I remember this is...

    Does Salt Go Off?

    I brought a bucket of salt, used it once, and dropped a rock and smashed my tank, so I have snapped the lid on and its air tight, so hopefully it should be ok.

    Brand Of Paint For Back Of Aquarium

    Thanks, I would pref something I could use a roller and slap it on the back. Im just worried about salt water and the type of paint I need to get. I should really read down the page before making threads. I just found "I asked same question about 8 months ago and I went with the majority on...

    Brand Of Paint For Back Of Aquarium

    Does anyone know a sp brand of dark blue paint I could use to paint the back of an aquarium. I just got a bigger tank and want to paint the back rather than trying the tape and backing route again, its pointless and ends up bubbly and ugly. Or if you could give me a sp type of paint, I can have...

    What Fish Shall I Add

    How big is the actual display tank? I saw a marine betta the other day at my LFS, they would make an interesting addition.

    Pricing? And Fish Questions

    Im in a rush, on my way out. Could someone post a website to get an RO unit from? Something with everything included to just fit it, no fuss kind of thing. Also how would I go about adding RO water to my current tap water run tank? Just start doing waterchages with RO water? Or do a 100% RO change?
