    182L stocking!

    No that’s perfect thanks, I just wanted to clarify if you meant both, or one or the other. Tbh I totally get what you mean. Think maybe I get abit too number focused sometimes because I am relatively new to the hobby and don’t want to make any colossal errors haha. But what my stocking currently...

    182L stocking!

    thanks so much for your help and advice Byron 👍🏻 that’s great to know I can add even bigger schools of them, I try to stay on the side of caution when it’s a new tank size as I didn’t want to come out with a number that sounded ridiculously overstocked. But the more I can add, without...

    182L stocking!

    to be honest, that sounds exactly like what I envisioned. I love cories and so knowing I could increase their numbers is awesome too. And with them being bottom dwellers I’d rather have a fish that uses the mid/upper levels like the Pearl gouramis more than some other lower level centrepiece...

    182L stocking!

    Aw thanks essjay, figured out it’s the external dimensions that they’ve quoted, taking off 12mm off each dimension for the thickness of the 6mm glass gives 182. So that makes sense

    182L stocking!

    That tank sounds like an amazing busy one! great to know I’m on the right train of thought for what I can stock - and that it works well for the fish too thanks for your advice! Oh really? I’m just taking it from the dimensions on the site and it’s claim that it’s 182 🤔 that’s odd! Maybe the dim...

    182L stocking!

    hey guys! Have been eyeing up a new tank for awhile, since I feel my 15gal is starting to get alittle crowded with my cories breeding from time to time (I’m now up 3 juveniles) so I was thinking of getting a 2nd and much larger main tank saw this aqua one 182L long tank, dimensions - 122cm x...

    Moving a tank for decorating help

    that is a perfect idea thanks guys! Il source some kind of dolly on wheels so I can carefully move it to the other room! Why didn’t I think of that 😂 I’ve also ordered a 50l storage/bucket so I can put most of the water in too. I usually do around 30% water change so if I’m using the same water...

    Moving a tank for decorating help

    Thanks for all the help guys, here’s an image of my tank currently. It’s set on top of a sideboard unit. Ideally removing most the water and sliding it over to the new unit would be the easiest thing to do but just with getting new flooring laid down it’s be a nightmare to work that. but that’s...

    Moving a tank for decorating help

    Hey guys as the title suggests I’m going to be decorating my living room soon, but have been putting it off because I don’t know best how to move my 15gal long. I’m getting a new floor and the room painted so it needs to be fully removed from the room and put in my office. But.. it will...

    Should I upgrade?

    Wee update, I’ve recently had an explosion of baby rcs in the tank, counted at least 12 juvenile shrimp which brings the total rcs in the tank to at least 22 with potentially more? I know the bioload for shrimp is low but would you think this many extra in the tank would make a big...

    Should I upgrade?

    Thankyou! I am super tempted haha, I just don’t have the biggest flat so finding a place for a 2nd tank of equal or bigger size is kinda difficult But I guess I have some time until the juvenile cories get larger and work out a solution haha
