    South American Community Advice Please

    Sure, I appreciate they might not be able to e mail back immediately and I wouldn't expect that, but over 2 weeks is not acceptable in my book. Especially when the website has the e mail address and asks people to email in if they have a query. Maybe my expectations are too high based on other...

    South American Community Advice Please

    Hey Eagles, Thanks for the reply. Thing is, I wasn't really looking for advice so much, as I'm doing all my research online. It was more in regards to their stock and where they import from. They've given good advice that's backed up the things I've found out myself, I just would expect people...

    Thanks for the insider knowledge. I've e-mailed Aqua fish again and if I don't hear back, I'll give them a call or FB message. Sad to hear of all the other places where the fish's welfare isn't number one priority. If you're ever in or close to Worthing, let me know and I'll thank you with a...

    Hey kopDS, I was considering using them after popping in there and seeing their set-up, but they've not replied to any of my e mails for weeks and weeks.

    Hi KopDS, Thanks for your advice. I'm actually in Worthing, so, still very close. I was thinking of stocking from MaidenHead Aquatics - Worthing Garden Centre Littlehampton Road, Ferring, Worthing BN12 6PW. Do you know it? I will get my water tested in that case. Is there a good kit to buy online?

    Cheers essjay, I've used that online tool and it's given me the following results - 108.8 Camg/L 272 CaCO3mg/L 15.23 German deg Does that completely count me out for water hardness or is there a way of changing it somehow?

    Hi Byron, Firstly, a huge thanks for this incredibly detailed reply. It's so much appreciated as getting the right combination is very important to me. As for the aquascaping, I wanted to recreate something similar to the natural habitat. I've not done too much research on that yet apart from...

    South American Community Advice Please

    Hi all, So... I used to keep a community tank many many years ago when I was just a lad. Now I have my own kids and have the time / money to start the hobby again and at the same time have them enjoy a tropical fish environment. I have done a lot of research and have decided to start a South...
