    New to Brackish fish.

    Hi, I've kept tropical fish for a while but have just obtained 2 GSP. They were sold to me as a freshwater fish but I've done a bit of research and have found that they do need brackish water as they get older. I have about a million questions but my main ones are.. How do achieve this? How do...

    Cory's are dying

    Thankyou. I've not lost anymore so I've got my fingers crossed for the rest.

    Cory's are dying

    Hi, it was the same filter. I'd kept it running throughout the move. All the same media etc. I was aware of the gas thing which is why I tested quite a lot following the move in case I had an Ammonia spike. No idea what's going on. As far as I can tell I've not done anything to cause this but...

    Cory's are dying

    It was a brand new tank, I part drained the original tank and removed decor to make catching them easier. All fish were places into 2 60l plastic tubs which has plants, airstone and heater. They were probably in the tub for around an hour. I've been checking water religiously as I was concerned...

    Cory's are dying

    Hi, can't take photos right now but here is some more info: Sand substrate no new tank mates added this year. I've had Cory's about 12 months Weekly water changes 60%. I drain with a Syphon and refill using a house and mixer tap. Water is matched to tank temp 25 degrees and I dose the tank with...

    Cory's are dying

    Hi everyone, I need some advice please. I have a 230l tank and I had 12 Cory's ( 6 pandas/6 Julii). Over the past week they've been dying for no obvious reason. I've done regular parameter checks ( ammonia 0, nitrate 0, nitrate 10, pH 7, Gh10, Kh 8). There are no signs of illness or injury. Tank...

    New fish recommendations

    Yeah the rainbows are a pretty fish. Years and years ago before I knew better I had a redtailed catfish. He was in a 6ft tank but I loved him. He knew us and would eat out of our hands etc and had a real personality. That's the type of thing I'd want to recreate but not with a red tail obviously.

    New fish recommendations

    Hi all, So I've unexpectedly ended up with a spare 240l tank. I'm trying to decide whether to sell it or keep it and get a large single/pair of dish with lots of personality that will interact with us. My water hardness is 10gh, kh8, PH 7. Amy recommendations of what I could keep in here...

    Leaking Tank

    I've ordered a new tank but the "leak" seems to have stopped so I think I might have had an issue with either condensation our my airstone. Either way, there is some water damage to my stand so I'll continue to wait for the new tank. I don't think there's any risk to this tank or my fish but...

    hardiest/ easiest dwarf cichlid for a beginner

    I have a pair of bolivian rams in a 240l tank with lights of other fish (Cory's, hoplos, various tetras) that get on no problem with other fish, aren't boisterous or anything. Really lovely fish. You just need to be aware of keeping them with other fish that they both are within the correct...

    Leaking Tank

    Hi, I'm don't even know where the water is coming from. I've decided I'm going to buy a new tank as I've no idea how to repair and wouldn't ever trust the tank ( especially if I fixed it) the stand is water damaged now anyway but it's a slow leak at the moment so I've left the fish and...
