    Best live food for Corydora Habrosus

    Freshly hatched brine shrimp are very small so grow your own as it's easy. Actually daphnia can be surprisingly big. Either way try it. Tiny neons will battle with a bloodworm nearly as big as them, it's like clash of the Titans but on a smaller scale lol

    Fluval 205 filter leaking!

    I had a leak once and it was the internals not fitted properly so not allowing the lid to seal. Funny it was after cleaning and it's been ok before. I'd remove n refit the filter bits and unless you lost a seal it will be ok.

    Best live food for Corydora Habrosus

    Hi, freeze dried ones are lower in nutrients than live ones and won't bring out the hunting instinct of your fish so I'd go with live or frozen any day and I wouldn't worry about them burrowing away at all as they will get eaten quickly. Mine go nuts when live food is given.

    Thankyou. Don't think I'll ever go to his shop again as this is worse than the last time n I put it down to a ammonia spike. Bear in all my fish were pristine before adding these n I'm gutted to have lost a lot of my favourite angels which were beautiful so only 1 left now.

    Salt use question, confused .?

    Thx guys. I see it's still up for debate. I've used the pro reef I have. The bulge eyed cory looks abit better and is actively seeking food. I put a few pellets in after 3 days of not feeding them n they went nuts. All seemed to be fine last night up til 2am, all fish looked happy until 5am a...

    Could really use some assistance

    Go very easy on the feeding is the answer, fish need surprisingly little ,, but will eat all the time given the chance. Twice a day is too much imo.

    Salt use question, confused .?

    Hi, I recently asked about my dying fish and the advise was to use salt in the first instance, which I'm now doing. I was told marine salt was fine to use so I was happy to as I have some. Yesterday somebody else asked about their dying fish and the advise from another was to use salt, BUT...

    UK plant seller recommendation??

    Not really , Iv had them crushed, dead, infested with snails, not as ordered so I'm searching as well . Best bet is to choice them in person.

    How to culture white worms?

    The best bet is go on YouTube, lots of vids. marks aquatics vids are really good and pictures explain better than words.
