    Losing Guppies!

    I have an established 240L tank. Over the last 2 weeks I have lost all of my 8 guppies (male and female) I do regular water changes and all other fish have been fine. On inspection, the tails have been nipped a bit but not to the extent that would kill them. So, any thoughts on what might be...

    Water Changes?

    Ok, thanks again everyone. One last question in this section! Once the conditoner has been added, is it best to let the water come to room temp before adding to the tank or does anyone "heat" their water to tank temperature?

    Water Changes?

    Ok, thanks again guys. I have e-mailed Scottish Water to find out if our supply does contain chloramine. Going on from this, what's the best or recommended water conditioner? I have bought some "Interpet tap safe" but I'm not sure if this is what's needed? I don't mind paying a bit more for...

    Water Changes?

    I've had my tank for about 8 months now and carry out 10%  water changes twice weekly. A few older guys I know who have had tanks for years have said I should let the water sit in buckets for 2 days to let the chlorine etc evaporate. Is this correct or am I better to add some form of "tap safe"...

    Community Shark?

    Community Shark?

    That's great, thanks for all the help and advice guys. I had been looking at SAE's as an alternative and they seem to have more benefits than problems or threats for obvious reasons. Any thoughts on how many roughly? I had also spotted a "leporinus fasciatus" in a book yeasterday. Should this be...

    Community Shark?

    I have had my community tank now for around 6 months with varied success. I lost a few fish recently due to a fungul infection which has now been cleared. I was looking for advice as to which sharks, if any, are suitable for a community (240l) tank? If not any alternatives or recommendations. I...

    In Need Of Advice!

    Ok, I have now discovered the betta has picked up a fungul infection. It has spread so quickly since yesterday morning!! He looks like he's on his last legs now. Is he beyond saving and is there anything I could/should be doing? Ok, I have now discovered the betta has picked up a fungul...

    Thanks for yor reply. I haven't seen any problems from the guppies/betta but I did add a couple of female guppies just over a week ago so I'm asuming it could be them then? The males have been with the betta for 6-8 months without any problems in the smaller tank...   I haven't done any water...

    In Need Of Advice!

    Hi folks. My name's Bryan. I recently upgrade to a 240 litre tank from a 60. The new tank was a friends who was giving it up and came with a few Kribs. I transferred my community fish (3 weeks ago) and added a few other fish since (guppies and corydoras) I have been doing regular water changes...
