    What type of Cory is this?

    Well this got solved! When i got the fish they werent labelled in the tank but I was attracted to there markings. The guy in the store tried to check the paperwork from the delivery but couldnt find it. They also werent priced so said I could have a few at £5.95 as it was most likely around...

    Gourami help

    Hi all, So - tank has been setup a maybe coming up to a few months now, some of the fish in there are dwarf gourami (2 female, 1 male). Now the males has built a bubble nest - now i wasnt trying to breed and there are other fish in the tank so the changes of any fry surviving are slim to none...

    What type of Cory is this?

    Thanks Byron - i think i agree that the C Reynoldsi looks closest. I'll get my DLSR out and try and get a nice photo rather than being lazy and using a phone camera! Lee

    What type of Cory is this?

    Thanks - yeah they were really eye catching and plenty in there all the same. I thought maybe "two saddle" from my googling - but i've not seen them before in any of the local shops! The "Leopards" were actually labelled up as "Corydoras Julii" - I've got 2 Albino in their too but cant...

    What type of Cory is this?

    Hi all, Any idea what kind of Cory this is? They were just marked up as "Corydoras" in the shop, but the vertical stripe just looked cool to me so a few were added! :) And here he is scavenging around with one of my Leopard Cory's Thanks Lee

    Plant ID's....

    Hi all, I'm sure this come up often as i'm sure alot of people do what I've done - get themselves to the shop, but some plants that they think, yep they'll look good and tackle my nitrates - then a month or so later sit here and think, i wonder what they are! Plant 1: I'm sure this was green...

    Brown algae in my tank

    Sorry to hijack! In terms of diatoms on plants, is it best to wipe it off or just leave it to die away itself. Dont want to end up ripping or pulling off leaves!!

    Reduction of flow

    Yeah thats what I fell for, i'd read that I needed a GPH rating at least 4 times my tank and that given my tank is "deep" it would be helpful for more flow to get more oxygen in to compensate for some of the lack of surface area, I was buying a spare pump in case of failure so just decided...

    Reduction of flow

    Hi all, I recently upgraded my pump in my filter for a 1000l/hr pump for better filtration however some people have then said i need to watch the flow of the water with Gourami. Obviously i can angle the flow towards the glass etc to reduce the flow and also add 45 pipe to reduce (you can feel...

    Food

    Hi, Thanks for the replies - i'll look into new life, omega one or Hikari. Atm there's some platys and corys in there. I've got some King British catfish food i'm dropping in for the corys/catfish pallets. I'm guessing these aren't great quality seen as that brand hasn't been mentioned! :/...

    Stocking plan

    Ah, i thought the electric blue was just a another variant of the Bolivian ram (i hadn't done much research on these yet other than size) - Didn't realise it was different. Second point noted - i'd always been told to add fish a few at a time in a recently cycled tank in case it caused a spike...

    Stocking plan

    Yes i read on that website, along with about 6 or 7 others :blink: which managed to come up with 3 or 4 different answers between them. 100cm x 40cm would even rule out a 3ft - 36" x 12" (91cm x 30cm) too as its not quite big enough - mad when you think about it. Where its odd for me and...
