    Well that little adventure didn't go well. The padded package of eggs arrived with a split end on the bag and a soggy end. The inside had two packets supposedly with 10 eggs in each but none were apparent however I had no idea how small they would be and whether or not they would be transparent...

    Morning Everyone. Stocking List and questions.

    25 - 26 - 27 isn't too much differential and temperature swings will be greater than this in the wild. I suppose you got a pair of rams with intentions of breeding them. The rams are fussy in choice of mates and just because you might have a male and a female doesn't mean they'll get on...

    PH Meter : De-ionised v Distilled water

    I got it sussed. I used distilled white vinegar 5% acid and a known ph of 2.4 to calibrate. In which case my water supply is at 7.00 ph. Only the GH messing things up at over 300gh

    PH Meter : De-ionised v Distilled water

    I got one of these on Saturday. It's very nice however trying to find distilled water to use for calibration is hard. Tesco has a bottle of deionised water in the motoring section though and I was tempted to get one but having Googled "deionised v distilled" I see that deionised water doesn't...

    Thanks guys. I added a FEMALE Asian Rummynose in there today. The LFS had a single one when I called in. I have a bottle of Easy-Life Profito fertiliser (UK spelling) now so will give it a go with that. Perhaps a very low Co2 bubble count as well for 6 hours a day. Maybe a bubble every 2 seconds.

    Pea Puffer Panic

    Had to get rid of mine. After they cleared all the snails they used to float up to my corys and snatch a lump from their tails. They were curious little critters though floating around with curled tails.

    Talking of goals, I believe I'm now somewhere near to achieving my own, as per the topic here. I took all the "excess" fish to the LFS yesterday and in return I came back with a good number of plants to add to the tank. I can't remember the last time I went there without coming back with fish...

    The old pit ponds are long gone. In fact since my childhood even some larger lakes have disappeared. I mean those that would be around the size of a couple of football fields. What still remains though are the old pit workings which are flooded well underground and perhaps even deeper than the...

    There are so many differences in this area. I used to work for a company called Wacker selling the rammers that compacted the earth back into trenches dug by the water boards. While not overly concerned with water quality I got to meet all the water board hierarchy. There was Northumbrian Water...

    How about these gorgeous little fish then. Red Neon Blue-eye Rainbowfish. I think they will complete my stock. I have 20 coming BUT as eggs. I have a spare 12 litre tank to use to hatch them in and get them to a large enough size before moving them in with the other fish. I'll be splitting them...

    75% water changes

    From the perspective of the fish if they could add something themselves, I am blown away by the suggested need to acclimate them before adding them to a tank. A couple of hours with their bag floating in the new tank can't do much for them as I see it. For instance when I do water changes often...
