    Feature Fish! Suggestions?

    You know, I just got a trio of honeys for my 60l yesterday as the centrepiece and they look amazing! Definitely recommended for a smallish community, however I think for your 180l a larger gourami's a good idea - pearl, gold or opaline are your best bet.

    Stocking Suggestions For A 15G Planted

    My 15gal has: 8 Ember Tetras 10 Neon Tetras 8 Pygmy Corys Bearing in mind this is a mature set up, this is a very colourful and active tank that I'm really liking atm. The embers and neons shoal together and contrast really well with the green plants. I have a dark substrate and background...

    Lfs Display Tanks

    The Maidenhead I did my work experience at had an 8'x4'x4' display with a 2 foot mbuna puffer, a few rays, a Black Ghost Knife fish, a rehomed plec and some seveums, looked awesome. Also had a 30l with some bumble bee gobies, as they had no brackish system and therefore the BBG wouldn't survive.

    Small Tank - External Filter And Heater

    I'd recommend the fluval 105. You can turn down the flow, but I've got it full pelt in my 30l and my Betta is fine.

    Is This To Much Stock For A Tank?

    If I were you I'd bring the filter from the 65l into the 180 with the tetras, since it should be able to deal with their bioload.

    Restocking My 60L

    Due to a combination of old age and internal bacteria my 60l has been left with a rather sorry looking stock list: 8 Ember Tetra 2 Pygmy Corys 1 Lampeye Killifish Simply, I'm looking to up the schools and add a bit of activity and colour to the tank - I'm thinking: 8 Ember Tetra 8 Pygmy Corys...

    Bumblebee Gobies And Tankmates

    Basically, I'm starting a brackish tank - it will either be 7 gallons or 15 gallons. Obviously for the 15 gallon I'd be looking at tankmates to go with the BBG. What are some good ideas? I've been looking a mollies, but I'm not sure if they're too big or boistrous. I've also seen the Indian...

    Will We Die In 2012?

    The Mayan Calenders end when a major event happens to change the world as we know it, and a new age begins. The world's polarity is due to change some time soon, maybe it'll be 21/12/2012?

    External Filter For 8Gal

    Just wondering what external filter I could use for an 8gal. Would the fluval 105 be too powerful (330lph I believe)? I guess I could find some way of slowing the flow? Just looking for an ok really, don't want my fish pushed up against the glass :lol:

    Dwarf Puffer Tank

    Don't worry, this forums here to give advice :good: I don't know if you read Practical Fishkeeping, but this month's Christmas edition had a feature on Dwarf Puffers, in which they said a good rule of thumb is 5 gal for the first one, than 2-3 gallons for each subsequant DP. They also commented...
