    Amano shrimp layed eggs, how to breed them??

    Might be a silly question but what's a refrector? That's a shame that they didn't survive. My husband really wants to give it a try, he said we've got nothing to lose because the fish would eat them anyway if they stay in the tank.

    Algae eater suggestions for 260L tank

    Thanks for your replies.... I haven't got a photo of the algae unfortunately as I've already cleaned it off. It wasn't an overwhelming amount, I'd just like to add something to help maintain it going forward. It's just the ordinary algae that you get on the glass. Hope this helps

    Argos play sand

    I bought some Argos play sand, as I saw it recommended on the forum. I've opened a bag, to wash it ready for my new tank but I was surprised as it's a dark colour, for some reason I was expecting a light coloured sand 🙈 I'm worried that it won't look right in my tank. If anyone has this...

    Upgrading to a new tank and closing down the old tank

    Thanks guys. I'll transfer my existing tank water and top it up with dechlorinated water so I can transfer my fish and I'll put old filter media into the new filter plus I'll be transfering the live plants, wood and rocks too.
