    23 Litre Fluval Edge, Planted, Just Waiting For Shrimpies!

I bought some red cherry shrimpies but hadn't put anything over the filter intake so they were all in the filter the next morning, so I bought a sponge and put it over the filter intake very promptly. This was the start and though I...

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies, advice, info and links.   My decision is to restart the tank again. The ammonia has been ordered, I will buy a new heater. The one I have was thrown in with the tank but I have read such bad reviews about it and they have turned out to be correct. It is a shame...

    Ask Questions About Cycling

    May I have a wee bit of help please. I have a new Fluval Edge 23 litre set up, filled and planted on Thursday with one dose of Nutrafin. Then for the next 48 hours was floored, not sure if it was reading the fishless cycle  or the virus that hit me like a ton of bricks.  Staggered out of bed...
