    Worried about my corydora bronzes

    Yes they do seem to be better. I’ve moved out a driftwood I’d moved from the guppy tank and they seem better now. I had a problem with bladder snails in that tank too. Removed what I could and the grass that had been lifted out by them. And lastly I’ve stopped putting the aquarium light on...

    Worried about my corydora bronzes

    Hi guys I’m worried about my corydora bronzes. They’re in a 60l tank, cycled the tank properly before moving them over to. 60/40 set up with RO:Tap water respectively. I’ve noticed the bronzes have what I hope is sand stuck to them all the time. In some lights they look like they have a gold...

    What Got ya Started in the hobby?

    My mum had a huge tank in our living room as a kid. She never did any testing, fortnightly water changes and I’m sure the completely wrong mix of fish but we never had losses, unless of ooolllllld age. Pure luck now I know different! Looking back we’re pretty sure she had a common plec, which...

    Does my betta need entertaining? How do you entertain yours?

    Hi guys Sorry about the delay in replying! I’ve tried him following one piece of food or changing the place I drop the micro pellets in so he swims here, there and everywhere. I have also tried live brine shrimp which he loves and it’s great dropping a few in in different places and watching...

    Guppy help please

    @essjay How quickly can too soft water cause problems for guppies - that seems like super soft water? When you say all ok, what are the water parameter numbers?

    Betta with an eye-deformity. Should I buy?

    Honestly no, but the fact it’s not normal would be a concern. I’m a softie though and would buy her anyway. My betta is only one eyed so I have an affinity with less than perfect fish

    Betta with an eye-deformity. Should I buy?

    I would! Although it’s not the eye I’d be concerned about, it’s the little pits in her head. @Colin_T

    Does my betta need entertaining? How do you entertain yours?

    Good afternoon all Do you guys entertain your Betta fish in any way? I don't want to get a mirror; I can't see the point in making him stressed and flare? I've heard about a ping pong ball? Any other ideas (as long as they're not ridiculous, like dressing up in a clown outfit) greatly...

    Hard water algae eaters

    Yeah I guess my issue is that I deliberately set up another tank that runs on a 60/40 RO/tap water basis to be able to move my cories as the don't flourish in hard water. If BN Plecos are to the same or similar parameters and I put it in rock hard water, I'm just back to square one and...

    Hard water algae eaters

    Can plecos handle water that hard? I like the look of bristles, clowns and bulldog ones.
