    Any ‘Aquamanta Nano 35’ owners out there?

    Ah! Okay. The reflection of the window in the tank tricked my poor brain. 😆 Do you have any moss balls in your tank? A couple of those might mop up some nutrients that are feeding the algae. I had the same issue with my Nerite snail but I kept it anyway. As for the shrimp, yes, I have two...

    Hello! Welcome to the wonderful world of fish keeping! Have you any, or have you thought about getting some algae eaters in there? A couple of Nerite snails perhaps? Or a couple of ottocinclus? A couple of decent soze amano shrimp would be very useful for all round cleaning. I notice your...

    Zebra Nerite questions

    Hello! Give it time. They’re pretty hardy but the shock of different water sometimes makes them hide for up to a few days. Not a good sign if continues beyond that. Just keep an eye out for staying still and hanging out of the shell. Remove immediately at that point, do a water change, and don’t...

    Thanks for the response, and the advice/info. I’d agree that it’s just as much of a challenge to keep a small tank in good shape as it is a large one. I’m always most concerned about making the fish feel at home first and foremost. I’d never set up anything less than 19-20l/5gallons personally...

    Many thanks for the warm welcome! 👍🏻 And for the response. I’m all for nano tanks to be honest. I’ve been doing a lot of reading about them. I wanted to know about this one specifically because it doesn’t appear to sold anywhere other than Maidenhead Aquatics and there are no reviews for it at...

    AquaManta Nano 35

    Hi Bruce, Are you still running this tank? I’m considering grabbing one to set up for a pea puffer. Just wanted to know if you’ve ever had an issues with the filter system? Is the pump decent enough? And have you added your own media into the system as well as or instead of what’s supposed to...

    Hello folks, I’ve recently returned to the joy of fish-keeping after a long, long break, mostly caused by moving a lot and living in rented accommodation. I used to keep freshwater trop and marines; had several 4ft tanks and an enormous L-shape (big enough for a young pacu) that...
