    Are My Blue Rams Breeding Already?

    After checking out the earlier post from Mayu on sexing Rams, I reckon the two that were fighting are male & female & the smaller one is also a male possibly - although that is only based on the blue sheen not showing through the black! Don't know if it helps or not???

    Are My Blue Rams Breeding Already?

    They've been at it a little bit today apparently, but they all seem fine now.

The two that were...

    Help! Reduced Flow In Fluval 3+

    Hi all, I'm currently running a Fluval 3+ & a Tetratec ex600 in my tank, but over the last few days the Fluval flow has gone seriously downhill. I've done the usual with cleaning the filter media & even taken the impeller out & cleaned it but nothing works! The flow is still really bad with just...

    How Much Gravel?

    I've recently bought a new (much bigger) tank & I'm considering going from sand to black gravel as a sustrate. The tank dimensions are 48" long by 12" wide by 18" deep - how big a bag of gravel would I need for it? I'm assuming that an 8kg bag would easily be big enough, but don't want to overdo...
